Abstract:

The article discusses a case study about the contribution of women in peace negotiations in Africa. According to United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan, women are better equipped than men in conflict resolution or prevention. The Femmes Africa Solidarite (FAS) is one of the non-governmental organizations helping in conflict prevention and resolution. The organization has created a multi-dimensional approach which aims to support and enhance the role of women in peace processes.
