Interview with Hanaa Edwar Busha from the Iraqi Al-Amal Association
What do you take with you from this conference?
It was a very good opportunity for me to meet women of different countries and I discovered different perspectives not only on gender but also on conflict and gender in conflict situations, which is the main thing that I am working in Iraq on. The fact that we can make an exchange of our experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo and other parts of the world is very important for us.
What advice would you give to people interested in the subjects of the conference that want to get involved?
It is very important –regardless if you are a student, an academic or any “ordinary” person- that you work with the people and that you make your own opinion on what is going on and make that opinion heard. What is happening to the people? You also have to question the intervention of your government in different matters. You have to have an opinion on that: is it correct? Does it need modification? Is it on the interest of your people? Is it on the interest of other people? These questions are essential when you speak about consolidating democracy or democratic regimes in the world.
