Klappentext
After war, social conditions are often regarded as more open for changes and international organisations are therefore encouraged to promote women's equal rights, utilising gender mainstreaming tools. These - sometimes inadvertently - affected the demobilisation program implemented after the civil war in Sierra Leone. On this program's background, the book examines the conceptualisation of women as combatants and victims. Being marginalised but far from passive, they engage with these concepts and strategise to socially (re-)construct gendered identities in order to take part in the benefits of the programs.
