WPS In Action: Countering Violent Extremism in Somalia

OSF is highlighting recently published interviews of our partner ICAN of Women, Peace and Security practitioners. This week, we highlight Somali peacebuilder Faiza Dhocob.

This November, OSF participated in the International Civil Society Action Network’s (ICAN) Annual Forum in Rabat, Morocco. As an ICAN partner, we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some of their recently published interviews, featuring insights and expertise straight from their partners in the field.

ICAN, in conjunction with the Ms. Magazine Blog, recently published a variety of pieces highlighting the crucial work being done by women peacebuilders around the world. The articles such as this spotlight on Somali peacebuilder Faiza Dhocob, are a great way to better understand how women and women’s groups are leveraging United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 to build peace in their communities.

For more on the work being done by Dhocob, and her organization, Witness Somalia, be sure to check out the link above!
