Gender Genocide in Burundi The Search for Spaces of Peace ↠ PDF

Burundi like Rwanda Congo and Uganda is linked to patterns of recurrent genocidal violence that have shaped events in the African Great Lakes region In Gender and Genocide in Burundi Patricia O Daley argues that sexual patterns of violence have become pervasive as male and Western dominated cultures of impunity devalue lives across the region In her view only a revised feminist historical approach to understanding violence and a reformed peace process on local as well as international levels will bring genocide to an end By bringing gender to bear Daley breaks down divisions at places where violence or social injustice has been reproduced in the past and illustrates how the protracted nature of oppression warfare and endemic violence can come to an end Daley's unique insight into the politics of genocide shows how a new gender oriented paradigm that emphasizes rights and humanity can make never again a reality
