2014-06-23

In today's world, the concept of 'peace' is no longer restricted to the domain of elimination of wars and military conflicts. It has been expanded to include the elimination of 'invisible violence' and attainment of a safe and secure everyday life. In this research supported by PCD through funding and facilitation services, case studies of women confronting invisible violence in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan show women combatting ecological crises and fighting threats to subsistence, community life and culture as they explore alternatives in daily life. By depicting and analysing their experience, the researchers attempt to rethink and reconstruct practice models for sustainable peace.
