CBAGS SERIES FACT SHEET: Women, CBAGs, and the Politics of Security Supply & Demand in Côte d’Ivoire
This fact sheet provides a snapshot of findings from a RESOLVE Network Community-based Armed Groups Series Research Report exploring women's roles in conflict and security in Côte d’Ivoire. Based on extensive field research and an original dataset of interviews with a wide range of informal security actors, the report explores the drivers of women’s participation and the roles they play--both formally and informally--in community-based security groups (CBSGs). More specifically, the report seeks to understand how women are involved in CBSGs by investigating their motivations and roles in context, and how they influence both the supply side and demand side of security provision. To learn more about the research methodology and detailed findings, please refer to the RESOLVE Research Report by Arsène Brice Bado and Brandon Kendhammer: Women, CBAGs, and the Politics of Security Supply & Demand in Côte d’Ivoire (2022).
