Join us this Thursday, December 13th at 7 pm at Nasawiya for a talk about analyzing the problem of the disappeared of the civil war in Lebanon from a gender-based approach.
Lyna and Chole, who are both well versed on the issue in their own capacities, will be guiding us into presenting how disappearances related to the war in Lebanon have produced indirect victims within their relatives, most of them women twice victims of their own being; how the disappearance of the male can victimize the woman a second time, by exposing her to her rights, or lack thereof.
*** Here is brief bios of Lyna and Chole: Lyna is a PhD candidate in Development Studies at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Her research focuses on the concept of the transition from conflict to peace after the civil war in Lebanon, with a case study of the issue of the persons who disappeared between 1975 and 1990 and whose fate remains unknown. In the past 30 years, this has resulted in countless mobilizations from their relatives – mostly women – without any agreement with the post-conflict state on how to resolve the issue.
Lyna is active in the academic, political and social spheres in Lebanon and Switzerland. She is part of Tajaddod Youth and takes part in their international projects, and is founding member of Act for the Disappeared.
Chloé is a PhD candidate at the Graduate School of Social Sciences in Paris. Her research spans the historical anthropology of war violence by looking at the phenomena of kidnappings during the war in Lebanon from 1975 to 1990. In parallel, her research interests revolve around the role of women during armed conflicts, and more particularity on the violence of the women engaged in the militias during the civil war in Lebanon.
