Report of the Advisory Group of Experts on the Review of the Peacebuilding Architecture


This report was prepared at the request of the President of the General Assembly and the President of the Security Council by a seven-member advisory group of experts designated by the Secretary-General. It is intended to nourish the second, intergovernmental stage, which it is hoped will lead to specific action to strengthen the Organization’s approach to sustaining peace.

The report suggests that post-conflict peacebuilding projects that advance gender equality, empower women and address women’s specific needs in peacebuilding contexts. Even though it emphasizes that the changing face of global conflict has had a particular and dramatic impact on women, it highlights that women constitute a vitally important dimension of broadening inclusion for sustaining peace.
