Speakers:  Dr Peace A. Medie University of Ghana

Peace's research centres on the dynamics of violence during and after conflict and the efforts that state and non-state actors make to address this violence. Her book manuscript, “Global Norms and Local Action: The Campaigns to End Violence against Women in Africa” examines how international organizations and the women’s movement have influenced the implementation of gender-based violence norms in Liberia and Côte d'Ivoire. It studies norm implementation at the street-level by analysing the performance of police officers and gendarmes.
