There is a persistent lack of opportunities for women to take part in local, regional, and national peace-building activities. This is mostly because of the uneven power distribution between males and females. Creating peace is often dominated by men, either consciously or unconsciously, leaving women’s voices unheard.
Ethiopia is presently carrying out various national-level peace-building interventions and approaches. Therefore, Justice for All-PF Ethiopia, in collaboration with the Ministry of Peace, has organized a series of trainings at the Justice for All Center of Excellence for Peace and Justice in Adama. The primary focus of the training was on women’s role in transitional justice and peacebuilding. Women leaders from Afar, Tigray, Amhara, and Addis Ababa are taking part in the program, as are representatives from various governmental institutions, social and religious organizations, and civil society organizations. This will lend clarity, enhance inclusiveness, help create effective strategies while teaching the participants about Ethiopian conflict dynamics and methods of resolving gender-related issues, and develop a network of trainers for community dissemination.
