Feminist (re)interpretation of the Dayton Peace Accords

Bosnia and Herzegovina

The report presents the discussions from the meeting, and recommendations for (immediate) action with respect to BiH. The document also puts forward a set of questions, ideas and potential models for how to work towards changing the narrative and manoeuvre space around peace agreements in general and the Dayton Peace Agreement in particular. In that sense this document should be seen as a working document.

The discussions were focused around five main areas:

• Militarization

• Economic and social rights

• Political economy and political economy of violence

• Justice and criminal justice

• Security sector reform

In order to facilitate free and open discussions the group decided to hold the meeting under the Chatham House Rule, which allowed the participants to speak as individuals, and to express views that may not be those of their organizations. Subsequent to that the discussion has been anonymized.
