The Women and Human Rights in the Middle East Program invites submissions for the third volume of its academic journal. This journal volume seeks to contextualize women in conflict, particularly since the onset of the Arab Awakening. The Arab Awakening not only led to political and social transformation, but also spurred conflict and violent clashes in many parts of the region. Despite remarkable gains by women in Egypt and Tunisia, violence and displacement continued to oppress women across the region. Basic human rights and protections were largely absent amid mounting crises and struggles for power. With no end to the violence in sight, these political and social realities also call attention to the immediate need to change perceptions of the concepts of citizenship and to focus on more inclusive policies and legal mechanisms for those directly affected by conflict — especially women and children.
