Policy Brief: Prospects and challenges for women’s roles in conflict prevention and reconciliation in Lebanon - Lessons from leading women peacebuilders in Tripoli and Baalbek

This policy brief is based on a gender-sensitive conflict analysis, as part of International Alert's Creating Space for Women Peacebuilders project. The analysis shows how unresolved issues from the past, particularly the civil war, compromise peace and reconciliation processes and limit women’s central role in these processes. It includes analysis findings, lessons learned from the project's implementation, and the perspectives and experiences of the women’s networks that took part. It also lays out lessons learned on advancing the WPS agenda, dealing with the gendered impacts of the civil war and developing spaces for women-led conflict prevention in Lebanon.
