BOOK YOUR TICKETS

The Colombian Peace Accord demonstrates what can be achieved by women in peace agreements. These hard won commitments on gender will be explored in terms of the innovative approaches used to obtain the gender commitments; what was achieved in terms of gender-based agreements;  how  the lessons learned in achieving a gender focus can benefit other peace processes; and what the challenges are for implementation.
