This paper focuses on an analysis of the lessons learned from applications of the Peace and Stability Development Analysis (PSDA)1 that was initiated in 2005 by UNDP and the Government of Fiji (Ministry of Multi Ethnic Affairs and National Reconciliation and Unity - MNRU), in collaboration with the Ecumenical Centre for Research, Education and Advocacy (ECREA).

It argues that conflict and development analysis processes such as the PSDA, which help surface issues of socio-economic development, security, democracy and peace are inextricably linked to notions of gender equality. Transforming gender relations for women and men needs to come to the foreground on the agenda for peace and conflict related aspects of development to achieve confl ict transformation.
