Case Study - Peace Leadership Programme: Women’s leadership in Myanmar

Orlanda Siow

One of 14 short case study summaries which were written by Orlanda Siow of UCL. They focus on development programs that aim to be both politically informed and gender aware. See From Silos to Synergy for a synthesis of the lessons that emerge.

This case study concerns a DFAT-funded cohort of female peace leaders in Myanmar – part of a range of programs working with peace leaders throughout the region. Since 2014, the Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies has identified and trained a select group of women to contribute to Myanmar’s peacebuilding efforts. In addition to empowering individual women and ensuring gender-inclusive peacebuilding, the program also aims to contribute to a sustainable settlement and economic growth.
