With the end of the Liberian Civil War in 2003 and the subsequent election of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to the presidency of Liberia in 2005, international observers are debating the status of women as fighters, victims, political actors, and civil society actors in Liberia and across Africa. Using a structured conversation format, Serif Turgut and Sharon Abramowitz contrast academic and practical reflections on gender, post-conflict reconstruction, and humanitarian intervention from two foreign observers of gender and security in Liberia's post-conflict reconstruction.
