Female livelihoods in conflict situations: Case from Bawku - Ghana
AuthorMumuni, Victoria Sharon-Lisa
This thesis focuses on women’s resilience in maintaining their livelihood in conflict situations, in the Bawku municipality of Northern Ghana. It is about women meeting their welfare needs and also sustaining their families in civil conflict situations. To meet this objective, the study draws upon multiple qualitative interviews, focus group discussions and observations from female household traders and farmers in Bawku. The sustainable Livelihood framework supplemented by the concepts of agency and empowerment, are the prism for illuminating how women in Bawku mobilize resources to sustain their families and maintain a sense of dignity.
