Life Stories: Learning from Kismayo

‘Life Stories’ is a set of deep, introspective narratives provided by six of the individual women that took part in a research process that examined the gendered dynamics of inter-clan conflict in Kismayo, Somalia, and in particular the role of women in processes of violence and peace. The ‘Life Stories’ provide a complementary human grounding to the connected research report, titled “Increasing Women’s Participation and Inclusion in Jubbaland Peace Processes: Learning from Kismayo”.
