WOMEN & PEACE: The role of women in Peace processes

The project aims to highlight the role that women have in negotiations to get peace in the different wars, through music and oral tradition as a tool to work.

Despite their active role as fighters, peacemakers and activists, women have tended to be underestimated or ignored during negotiations, perceived as the passive victims of war. Through talks, workshops, debates and testimonies young people acquire knowledge and tools to foster spaces where putting in common the best tool in peace processes: the dialogue.

We are going to work about the role of women in peace processes through the music and oral tradition as a tool. During the youth exchange the young participants will analyze redemption songs and oral traditional pieces, as they suppose a powerful tool for claiming for peace and human rights.
