Edited Volume

Kolås, Åshild (ed.) (2017) Women, Peace and Security in Northeast India. New Delhi: Zubaan Books.

In Northeast India, women have a long history of engagement in peacebuilding and mediation, and have mobilized effectively for community survival and mitigation of violence. As stakeholders in conflict, women have also played a significant role as supporters of armed groups, and, in some cases, armed fighters. ​The research presented in this volume highlights Northeast Indian women’s political agency and activism, for political change as well as conflict resolution.
