Short Online Course | Bridging the Gap: Enhancing Women’s Participation in Peacebuilding Processes

24 November, 2021

Although women play varied roles in conflict and conflict resolution, their contributions are often not adequately acknowledged. Conflict prevention processes, management and post-conflict outcomes can significantly be improved through the inclusion and participation of women in peace processes. Women, however, are mostly excluded from formal peace processes, which negatively impacts outcomes of peace processes. Nilson (2012), through a statistical study, demonstrates that the participation of civil society groups, including women groups, increases the durability of peace outcomes noting that peace agreements are 64 percent less likely to fail. This notwithstanding, it is documented that “between 1992 and 2019, women constituted, on average, 13 percent of negotiators, 6 percent of mediators, and 6 percent of signatories in major peace processes around the world“.
