The meaning and practice of women's empowerment in post-conflict Sierra Leone

Abstract

Hussaina J. Abdullah and Aisha Fofana-Ibrahim address the meaning and practice of women's empowerment in Sierra Leone's post-conflict reconstruction and peace consolidation processes from the perspectives of the Government of Sierra Leone and the UN system in Sierra Leone. These two institutions illustrate how women's empowerment has been pursued in two institutions with key roles and positions in Sierra Leone's post-war renewal processes.
