Gender and statebuilding in South Sudan

The United States Institute of Peace published in December 2011 a report titled Gender and Statebuilding in South Sudan. The author is Nada Mustafa Ali, a part-time faculty member in global studies at the New School in New York and a consultant and activist.

Ali concludes that the government of South Sudan, with the support of the international community and regional partners, should ensure a strong voice for and meaningful participation of women at all stages of statebuilding.

It should also create a conducive environment for women's participation, human rights, and gender equality by addressing women's immediate needs of access to quality health and education, and help them in their quest to live in a country free of all forms of violence.
