WOMEN'S INVOLVEMENT IN LOCAL LEADERSHIP

Funder: CHF International

The Women's Involvement in Local Leadership (WILL) research program was designed to examine the factors believed to contribute to the cultivation of sustainable and credible women's leadership at the local level in conflict-affected communities in Colombia, Iraq and Serbia. The research focused particularly on: 1) project formulation and implementation aimed at promoting greater and more democratic participation among women in local and community organizations; and 2) the respective roles that men and women play within the observed economic and social settings, and the impact of these roles on women's participation and leadership.
