Mission

Are the aims of power-sharing and the women, peace and security agenda compatible?  How do power-sharing pacts and the women, peace and security agenda intersect with transitional justice practices?  Has feminist activism had an impact on power-sharing designs?  The project explores constructive engagements between these conflict resolution processes.

 

Goals

Our four-year research plan is centered on two objectives: developing opportunities for practitioner-academic -- 'pracademic' -- engagements to advance scholarship and creating a gendered theory of power-sharing.  We will employ a qualitative multi-methods approach, including in-depth semi-structured interviews with politicians, advocacy groups, and UN staff; gender analysis of comprehensive peace records, UN Security Council Resolutions, and other key peace documents, and; comparative case studies (Syria, Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Northern-Ireland).  This research will benefit not only scholars and practitioners but also women, men, and children who live in conflict and post-conflict zones.
