Abstract [en]

The role of women of faith in peacebuilding has been largely overlooked with limited research looking at the crossover between the three topics of conflict, religion and gender. This thesis uses Critical Discourse Analysis to look at the challenges facing women of faith in peacebuilding and the mechanisms they use. Challenges include finding an inclusive definition of peace, the invisibility and marginalisation of women of faith in formal peace processes, acknowledging that their oppression also opens avenues of informal mechanisms to influence peace. Theoretical dissonance between liberal and feminist philosophies and traditionally patriarchal religions forms another key finding. The paper highlights the necessity of furthering our understanding of this area in order to expand the parameters and hence effectiveness of building sustainable peace.
