Transitional period

Everything is in turmoil after conflicts end. Past systems and structures are defunct and important decisions that will affect the country's future trajectory are being made.

It is vital that women's voices are incorporated into this post-conflict phase. FAS has two priorities in the transitional period:

- to ensure the effective participation of women as leaders in their communities so that they are more fully involved in all decision-making processes;

- to promote gender mainstreaming into the political process so that gender issues are recognized and addressed when matters of health, employment, education and human rights are tackled.
