South Sudan: Women Needed to Kickstart Peace Process, Conference Told

With South Sudan’s peace process floundering, members of the diaspora and their American supporters have come up with a possible solution: give women leadership roles and let them restore peace. The conference looked to the state of Western Bahr el Ghazal as an example of how to build and keep peace. The state in the northwest of South Sudan has remained peaceful, for the most part, in the past five-and-a-half months, even as violence has engulfed other states and plunged the country into crisis.
