Abstract

Given that women consistently receive less attention than men in peace building and that genderanalysis rarely informs strategies related to conflict transformation, this article examines how aEuropean Union (EU) PEACE III project, titled Women and Peacebuilding: Sharing the Learning,addresses this gap. It challenges the hierarchal nature of the dialogue on peace building in a postconflict society and suggests how this can be changed. It shows how activists and policy-makerscan becomemore engaged around UNSCR 1325 onWomen, Peace and Security and argues that ifgovernment officials had adopted a more contextualised, bottom–up system of policy making,they could have engendered social transformation within the broader processes of post-conflicttransition.1 The project's findings are framed within the context of the dominant discourses onpeace and security and should be relevant to those engaged in the implementation of UNSCR 1325in other post conflict societies.
