As an Advocacy Project Peace Fellow working with Vikalp Women's Group in Gujarat, India, I finally attended my first Women's Court session this week. 

I have been struggling with the question of legality:  what makes these women’s courts/Nari Adalats (NA) legal? What makes their decision enforceable? From where do they derive authority?

The Role of Digital Diaspora in Peace Operations

Every fragile nation has it's diaspora and we've been mapping the digital communities for over a year now. I use the term "diaspora" here as a catch-all; to cover refugees, emigrants and so on.
