CENTRALISING WOMEN’S AGENCY IN PEACE BUILDING AND ENDING CONFLICT; THE BURUNDI CRISIS.

CENTRALISING WOMEN’S AGENCY IN PEACE BUILDING AND ENDING CONFLICT; THE BURUNDI CRISIS.

Burundi conflict is one of the prominent intrastate conflicts threatening stability in the Great Lakes Region and characterized by high rates of civilian casualties and massive human rights violations. As women and girls who want to see peace and calm restored in Burundi, the Barundikazi who were passionately interacting on media but had not met physically sought space to interact, connect, bond and chart out their collective course of action. A consultative meeting brought together the women’s movement from the region (Rwanda, South Sudan, Kenya and Uganda) in solidarity with the Burundi women to strategize for their effective participation in the dialogue for restoration of peace and security in Burundi.
