The Peace Women project is an academic postdoctoral research study funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship Programme. It is hosted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (Netherlands) and by the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient in Bonn (Germany).


The Peace Women is a full-length and multisite study of women, revolution, forced migration and peacebuilding in Yemen and beyond. It proposes a deeper and more critical understanding of the role of women's rights activists and refugees in post-revolutionary conflicts and peace processes. It focuses particularly, but not exclusively, on Yemeni activists in exile, based in the Netherlands, Germany and Jordan.
