Occasional Paper: “Women Moving from Track II to Track I Peacemaking” by Ms. Salma Yusuf

The Ottawa Dialogue Occasional Paper series is intended to respond to timely issues with commentary and ideas which arise from the work of our organization as well as provide reflection space for those working in the field. Your feedback and comments are welcome and may be sent to the Ottawa Dialogue at OttawaDialogue@uottawa.ca. The author(s) of each Paper are entirely responsible for its content.

The aim of this Occasional Paper is to facilitate a conversation on how women can smoothly move from the Track II level to the Track I level of peacemaking. By drawing on both literature and personal insights, the paper explores the inherent challenges and opportunities that come with such a movement from informal Track II roles of peacemaking to formal Track I roles of peacemaking.
