Women, Constitution-Making and Peace Processes

This brief sets out guiding questions for women seeking to brainstorm and engage in constitutional reform processes, and notes some of the key areas where a gender influence is often brought to bear, or where there are significant risks for women if issues of gender are ignored.

This brief is part of a Gender Briefing Series to support women’s meaningful participation and the integration of gender perspectives in peace processes that aim to end violent intrastate conflict. It was funded with generous support from the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development.
