Abstract

On International Women’s Day 2017, Aili Mari Tripp discusses insights from her research on the advancement of women’s right in postconflict societies in Africa. She argues that in many cases, the very disruptions caused by major conflicts have enabled women to mobilise and assume new roles in both the economy and politics, transforming legal, institutional, and normative frameworks along the way.
