Colombia Securing Peace: Women’s Achievements and the Challenges Ahead

The Colombian Peace Accord demonstrates what can be achieved by women in peace agreements. These hard-won commitments on gender were explored in an international conference in London on 22 November 2017, which was organised by ABColombia. Various panels composed of Colombian women human rights defenders, international policy-makers and academics looked at the innovative approaches used to obtain the gender commitments; they analysed what was achieved in terms of gender-based agreements; discussed the challenges are for implementation; and explored how  the lessons learned in achieving a gender focus can benefit other peace processes.

At the end of 2018, ABColombia will publish a report based on the issues discussed during the conference. The report will be available in English and Spanish and will contain concrete policy recommendations for UK, Colombian and international policy makers.
