See our recent publication from Indonesia on the role women play in ending hostilities and sustaining peace …. Add Hidden Pearls with the text "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.
