Abstract [en]

Women´s substantial inclusion in peace processes has since the adoption of UN SCR 1325 been much emphasized, but little studied. Furthermore, the research conducted has largely abstained from using clear definitions of what women´s inclusion entails, which difficult the intent to understand if and how the inclusion may have affected the content of the peace agreement. This study seeks to address this gap and contribute to the field by looking specifically at women´s substantial inclusion during the peace negotiations. The study argues that when women are substantially included in the peace negotiations, the content of the peace agreement will be widened to include social equality provisions. By employing a comparative case study, the hypothesis is tested on the peace negotiations that took place between the Colombian government and the M-19 and the FARC-EP. The findings suggests support for the proposed hypothesis. However, the findings also indicate that the support of international gender experts during the peace negotiations seems to have exerted some influence on the content of the provisions the women in the peace negotiations were to raise, thus calling for the need of more research to be conducted in the field.
