To end the conflict, Burkina Faso has put in place several multisectoral initiatives, both at political and community levels. Women participate in these initiatives as actors for peace, seeking to promote social cohesion and the return of peace to the country. They traditionally play a mediating role in family and community conflicts. However, the contribution of women remains unsatisfactory and not very visible in peace initiatives. They are under-represented in state structures and mechanisms for reconciliation and national cohesion.
It is important to support the role of women in building peace in Burkina Faso. This requires recognizing and strengthening their contributions while addressing the challenges they face.
