What We’ve Learned: Gender

The Political Settlements Research Programme is working on a number of initiatives and publications relating to gender. To learn more, browse our key outputs on gender below.

In this theme we focus on the challenges and opportunities of formalised political unsettlement, for women’s strategies for change. This theme is supported by our conceptual work on the ‘blind spots’ of political settlements analysis. We view women as a key category through which to explore the way in which an inclusion agenda that is not driven primarily by armed actors is enabled or disabled during peace processes with a priority of ending violence.
