The report reflects on the programme’s outcomes and shares the strategies used to adapt to challenging circumstances. It shares strategies employed to increase the gender-responsiveness of transitional justice mechanisms, and to adequately respond to sexual and gender-based violence and other gendered impacts of violent conflict and repressive regimes.

The situation of women combatants and the roles they can play in conflict transformation and peacebuilding is an area which has received minimal attention in the women, peace and security agenda over the past 15 years. This case study of the Maoist women combatants in conflict and post conflict Nepal seeks to document and analyze their realities within the contrasting narratives of victimhood and agency.

A central challenge to women’s underrepresentation in peace and transitional processes is the lack of evidence-based knowledge on the role and impact of women’s inclusion on peace processes. The objective of this report is to present an analysis of women’s inclusion in order to provide UN Women with direct comparative evidence on women’s influence in previous cases of peace processes since the 1990s.

The participation of women in decision-making in peace processes is one of the pillars of UN Security Council resolution 1325. The Philippines has seen robust women’s participation in the peace negotiations between the Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). In 2014, the parties signed a comprehensive peace agreement1 after 17 years of negotiations. The peace agreement was hailed for its strong provisions on women’s rights as well as for women’s political, social and economic participation.

The promises and visions articulated in United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 and subsequent UN resolutions and position papers that recognize the connection between gender equity and women’s participation in all aspects of peace processes and peacebuilding on the one hand, and international peace and security on the other, have not been fulfilled. Nonetheless, these resolutions have opened the way for advocacy that has had some successes in specific contexts. Colombia offers one such case.

The report draws on a new dataset from the Peace Agreement Access tool PA-X together with gender quota data from the Quota Project (www.quotaproject.org). This report responds to what the author suggests is an urgent need to develop clearer conceptual thinking on the relationship of women’s equality to power-sharing in the peace and security field. It also responds to a need to work towards more systematic empirical evaluation of the relationship.
