Gender, Power and Peacebuilding. The struggle for gender equality in post-war Kosovo
When the conflict in Kosovo came to an end in 1999, a period of peace building and international intervention took over in the country. In this post-war and present development setting, power is being shaped, established and resisted against through actions and ideals. In this thesis, the power relations between local women’s NGOs and the international community in Kosovo’s peace building process will be analyzed through a post-colonial and feminist theoretical standpoint.
This thesis is based on fieldwork carried out in Kosovo between September and November 2010. Seven formal interviews were conducted with local NGO members as well as a dozen informal interviews with other local actors and international aid workers.
