  • Goodbye to a great Great Lakes emissary | Jina Moore
    from 1996 2001 under President Clinton and again in 2009 at the request of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton I knew of him from the Burundi Leadership Training Program an initiative he led at the Woodrow Wilson Center to transform leadership in post conflict Burundi I interviewed him a few years ago at the Global Conference on the Prevention of Genocide and I met some of the leaders he worked with in Burundi before its troublesome 2010 presidential election The Training Program didn t solve post conflict Burundi but it stands out to me as a quintessential example of dedicated sustained post conflict engagement from the grassroots to the political elite driven by listening to local needs I might be wrong It s worth your digging through the impressive library of the initiative to tell me so If you d like to cheat NPR ran a documentary about the importance of this program several years ago H T for this news that has me totally down to hofrench Tags great lakes howard wolpe Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Previous article Nobel Women s Initiative takes on sexual violence Next article Look out women You know what they say about sneezing don t you You may also like How Rwandan Women Got Their Power Star Studded London Summit Won t End Sexual Violence Without Survivor Voices Nobel Winners Say Rwanda s Keeper of the Dead Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not

  • Places Not to Be Right Now: Burundi | Jina Moore
    Commission for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting The commission is a new UN body charged with promoting stable peace in post conflict societies It is supposed to be I heard again and again and again in the countries I visited aggressively political It was neither And until now neither has anyone else There are a lot of reasons for that and I can t pretend to know many of them But here maybe is one HRW writes Burundians and international observers had hoped that national and local elections the country s first since the end of a nearly 16 year civil war in 2009 would consolidate Burundi s democratic gains and showcase years of successful investment by the United Nations regional governments and donor states in moving Burundi from an era of violence to one of multiparty democracy HRW s characterization is itself a little grandiose the first mostly post conflict presidential election much more successful by most accounts than the second one was in 2005 and it went pretty well despite the holdout rebel group waiting four years to sign a peace deal And even some of the UN folks I talked to who worked in Burundi then find the idea of the Burundi success story naive But as any of your ex boyfriends or girlfriends can confirm the delusions we create can be powerful In Burundi though it might help to give ourselves a little hip check and adjust our strategy This report is a good first step toward setting the record straight Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Previous article Happy Birthday 1325 or Why women in Burundi won t let me be cynical about some UN resolutions Next article Goodbye to a great Great Lakes emissary You may also like Refugee Hotel Goodbye to a great Great Lakes emissary Happy Birthday 1325 or Why women in Burundi won t let me be cynical about some UN resolutions 2 Comments yolanda says November 26 2010 at 2 08 am the first mostly post conflict presidential election much more successful by most accounts than the second one was in 2005 and it went pretty well despite the holdout rebel group waiting four years to sign a peace deal the 2005 election was not a direct popular election of the president voters did not vote directly for pierre rather pierre was appointed by his parliamentary peers which is why many are calling the 2010 elections the first presidential elections while these weren t the first elections it is the first time burundians voted in presidential elections since the end of the war this may end up being an important point five years from

  • Happy Birthday 1325, or, Why women in Burundi won’t let me be cynical about (some) UN resolutions | Jina Moore
    implementation or the cynics might say implementation at all But before we wallow in despair or gloat here s something worth thinking about whatever the failures of these ten years this language matters That s not something I believe it s something I learned from women in Burundi when I was reporting on peacebuilding for the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Burundi like Rwanda experienced horrific ethnic violence in the 1990s Massacres begat revenge and the country hardened into Hutu vs Tutsi Except for some women who refused to follow belligerent men in violently dividing their society There were quartiers especially in suburbs where only Tutsis could live and they would chase Hutus and vice versa You couldn t go in another area without being killed remember Justine Nkurunziza now the vice president of the association of civil society groups The ethnic binaries made some women feel divided in their own families As women you have people on both sides Me my dad is a Hutu and my mom is a Tutsi As a child you have cousins on both sides she said Women want to see their aunts their sisters Kids want to play together And so some women simply did just that They would make appointments to meet in the center of Bujumbura the capital at a neutral place like Novotel a posh hotel They wanted to make sure their kids could meet their friends They mixed And once you meet and get close to one another it creates friendships Other women pushed boundaries even more purposefully Organized by some NGOs Nkurunziza remembers women moving from a Tutsi suburb to the Hutu populated Bujumbura Rurale the tall igiseke baskets with cone shaped hats balanced on the women s heads simply going to visit These visits broke barriers she recalled Dialogue began It was for the most part an invisible fight Nkurunziza told me These are kinds of acts not documented When men went to Arusha peace negotiations they didn t mention it They were just power sharing signing documents But the real peace was happening at the grassroots with the women It didn t end there The women realized their power at the grassroots and advocated for a place at the men s table Nkurunziza recalls women lobbying for the right to participate in the negotiations in 2000 They were rebuffed several times she said but finally the men relented and agreed to allow women in the room They couldn t speak or participate but they could listen They may not have been allowed to take the floor Nkurunziza thinks but their presence made an impact on Burundi which now has a 30 percent quota for women serving in Parliament and on the UN I think this somehow influenced the vote on 1325 I think it inspired people Nkurunziza says I haven t cross checked that with the diplomats in whose interest it would be to deny it anyway But I did as Nkurunziza what influence 1325 has
