Toward Inclusive Peace: Implementing Peace Agreements and Gender Equality

Panel Code

How can peace agreements advance women’s rights and participation after post-conflict and political transitions? This panel examines the relationship between women’s presence in the processes of peacemaking, the inclusion of women’s rights and gender provisions in peace agreements, and the outcomes for women’s participation in post-conflict governance of countries with successful peace agreements. Post-conflict and political transitions are major opportunities to advance women’s rights and participation: this panel investigates how those opportunities can be harnessed and supported in implementation of peace agreements through global, comparative and individual country analysis papers.
