Promoting Women’s Participation in Peace Negotiations and Peace Processes

Publisher: Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH
Publication Date: Jan 2014

This report is the outcome of two international workshops entitled ‘Promoting women’s participation in peace negotiations and political processes after violent conflicts’. Peace activists from different regions undergoing violent conflict and peace processes – such as Afghanistan, Burundi, Colombia, Kenya, Liberia, Guatemala, Nepal, South Sudan and the Philippines – participated in both workshops. They shared their knowledge and their experiences and set the ground for fruitful discussions with representatives from governmental and non-governmental development organizations as well as German ministries. The main analytical focus of the publication is how development agencies can promote and increase women’s participation in peace processes and peace negotiations.
