This book has grown out of a research project on “The Roles of Women and Children in Post-Conflict Peacebuilding”, initially conceived by the two editors of this volume in 2000 as a research activity of the Peace and Governance Programme of the United Nations University (UNU). At that time Albrecht Schnabel was a member of the Peace and Governance Programme, while Anara Tabyshalieva joined it for several months as a visiting research fellow. After securing financial support from UNU and the Asian Women’s Fund, the editors assembled a group of contributors and initial author workshops were held in Tokyo and New York to discuss the results of background research and first chapter drafts. Over time the work developed into two book projects, with a changing and growing number of contributors. Defying Victimhood: Women and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding is the first volume emanating from this project. The second volume, entitled Escaping Victimhood: Children, Youth and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding, will be published later in 2012.
