African Women on the Thin Blue Line: Gender-Sensitive Police Reform in Liberia and Southern Sudan

Published: October 3, 2011

How do you build lasting peace once war is over? NSI’s publication, African Women on the Thin Blue Line: Gender Sensitive Police Reform in Liberia and Southern Sudan, explores how women in civil society and their female counterparts in the police are experiencing police reform processes in two conflict-affected African contexts: Liberia and Southern Sudan.

The book, available electronically, highlights the challenges of fully integrating a gender perspective into police reform as well as the many opportunities and strengths of such an approach.

The work was edited by senior researcher Jennifer Salahub. It includes two case-studies which focus on the perspectives of Liberian and Southern Sudanese women. Policy recommendations are featured at the end of the book and draw on the perspectives of women.
