Post-conflict reconstruction

BogforsideAssocitate Professor Birgitte Refslund Sørensen has contributed to the publication 'Gender: War' with the chapter 'Post-conflict reconstruction'.

The publication examines war through the discipline of gender and sexuality studies. The volume demonstrates that bodies and other allegedly passive material/other allegedly passive objects have a history and also agency. Chapters describe feminist interventions in war and violence history’s genealogy, present incarnations, and possibilities for the future in the context of gender and sexuality studies. 

The chapter of Birgitte Refslund Sørensen introduces a feminist, anthropological and policy oriented approach to gender in the context of war and reconstruction. It furthermore discusses the economic, social and political reconstruction of Sri Lanka in a gender perspective.
