Summary

In every conflict, women play an important role in ending hostilities and forging reconciliation.  In Indonesia, women contribute significantly in conflict prevention and peace-building, especially in the post-conflict regions of Maluku, North Maluku, Central Sulawesi, NTT and Aceh. Unfortunately, their stories have not been well documented and little is known by the public.



UNDP project Peace Through Development in Disadvantaged Areas (PTDDA) activities since 2012, with the support of N-Peace, have produced many success stories and lessons learned that can be used and disseminated so that they may inspire women all over Indonesia to contribute to peace building.

The book titled "The Hidden Pearls - Heroic Stories of Women Peace Builders" is a compilation of the stories.
