Abstract [en]

This thesis is structured as an explaining-outcome process-tracing of the fully implemented gendered stipulations of the 2016 Colombian Peace Agreement. The Agreement has received worldwide attention, not the least for its comprehensive gender inclusiveness. However, in the implementation of said Agreement, the provisions coded as gendered are lagging behind with an implementation-gap of 14% compared to the overall implementation ratio. Out of the 130 stipulations coded as gendered by the Kroc Institute Barometer Initiative, only five have reached full implementation. Why these five provisions have been fully implemented, whilst the overall trend is to the contrary, is a puzzling result and something that deserves further attention. By utilizing an explaining-outcome process-tracing methodology, this thesis strives to gain further understanding of the causal mechanisms that underlies this outcome. By conducting such a study, this thesis seeks to contribute cumulatively to the research domain of gendered Peace Agreement implementation. The study shows that the fully implemented gendered stipulations do not have many factors and/or mechanisms in common with the exception of state capacity and international support. However, perhaps the most striking common denominator is how these five stipulations are all fundamental for further peace agreement implementation. Although gender inclusiveness was at the forefront during the peace negotiations in Havana, this study emphasises how what is agreed on paper is not necessarily translated into post-Accord reality, highlighting the discrepancy between peace on paper and its actualization.
