9780761995395: Women, War and Peace in South Asia

Women, War and Peace in South Asia examines the many different experiences women have of conflict in this region.

Rita Manchanda shifts the focus away from the victimhood discourse (such as The Grieving Mother) and explores women′s agency for both peace and conflict. The book is structured around six narratives of women negotiating violent politics in their everyday lives.

About the Author:

Rita Manchanda is an established writer, scholar-researcher, and human rights activist specializing in conflicts and peace-building in South Asia with particular attention to vulnerable and marginalized groups, that is, women, minorities, indigenous peoples, and forcibly displaced persons.

Professor Manchanda has over 15 years of experience as a Senior Executive and Research Director with the regional NGO “South Asia Forum for Human Rights” (SAFHR), directing and coordinating a diverse portfolio of programs, including “Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes,” “Women, Conflict, and Peace,” “Media in Conflict,” and “Rights-based Approaches to Poverty Reduction.” Also, during the last decade and a half, she had been the gender advisor, Commonwealth Technical Fund (2004–05), and consultant in projects with UN Women (2010–11, 2012– 13, 2014), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP 2014–15), Centre for Humanitarian Dialogues (2011, 2012), and SAFERWORLD (2015, 2016). She has lectured on conflict resolution at Rotary Centre for International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution, Chulalongkorn University (2014), Welthungerhilfe (WHH; 2014), Lady Shri Ram College (2008–16), and SAFHR: Human Rights and Peace Orientation Course (2000–08). 

Her more recent publication SAGE Series in Human Rights Audits of Peace Processes undertaken by SAFHR and published by SAGE (2015), is a field-based audit study of peace-making in Northeast (India), Balochistan (Pakistan), Madhesh (Nepal), and Chittagong Hill Tracts (Bangladesh). Among her many books and articles are Women War and Peace in South Asia: Beyond Victimhood to Agency, a pioneering study on feminist theorizing and praxis on conflict and peace-building (SAGE 2001), and Naga Women in the Peace Process (SAGE 2004).

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. `The edited collection offers invaluable insight into core themes within the discipline, as well as for scholars interested in the psychology of gender and conflict - Peace and Conflict In the mata-narrative of histories, the dominant motif of women in violent conflict is the Grieving Mother. Yet, there are many faces of women in conflict in South Asia. Women have negotiated conflict situations by becoming citizens, combatants, heads of households, war munitions workers, prostitutes, producers of soldiers and war resisters, and political leaders at the local and national levels. At one end in South Asia, is the Woman of Violence represented by the Armed Virgin of the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Ealam), and at the other, the Woman of Peace, symbolised by the Naga Mothers Association in the nationalist struggle for an independent Nagaland. Structured around six narratives of women negotiating violent politics in their everyday lives, this book shifts the focus away from the victimhood discourse and explores women s agency for both peace and conflict. Threaded through these essays is the controversial theme of the dualism of loss and gains : the societal upheaval caused by conflict opens up public spaces for women, thus bringing about unintended but desirable structural changes for women s empowerment; yet, it is precisely at this time that the impulse to women s transformation is circumscribed by the nationalist project itself, which casts women in the role of guardians of the community s accepted and acceptable distinct cultural identity and tradition. This book is a vital and timely contribution to the literature on women s culture of peace politics. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780761995395
