Abstract

This article discusses the gendered dynamics of peace negotiations and peace processes. I examine the different pre-negotiation, framework and implementation stages of peace processes and the different difficulties for women which arise at each stage. The article sets out strategies for inclusion for women at each stage of a peace process, drawing on Northern Ireland as a case study.

Keywords: women, peace agreements, peacemaking, armed conflict, negotiation
