Engendering Peace: Incorporating a Gender Perspective in Civilian Peace Teams

Friday, January 1, 2010

This publication is the result of a one-year pilot study carried out for the Women Peacemakers Program (WPP) of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR). This study initiated an exploration of the field of civilian-based peacekeeping from a gender perspective. The pilot focused on the work carried out by those organizations that provide unarmed international accompaniment in the form of peace teams (also known as “peace armies” or “peace brigades”) to persons, groups or communities threatened by political violence in conflict affected situations.
