Description and results


Through this initiative, Crisis Group proposes to contribute to the prevention, resolution and mitigation of deadly conflict by arming stakeholders and decision-makers with the early information and in-depth analysis they need in order to take preventative action. This project will particularly focus on the risks of political exclusion and the opportunities for inclusion in different conflicts around the world. It will develop gender-sensitive, thoroughly researched, and pragmatic policy recommendations, and find new ways to promote those ideas with relevant decision-makers and key conflict actors with a focus on taking action so that they can help bridge the gap between analysis and action. Crisis Group will devote particular attention to women’s political participation in different stages of conflict and conflict resolution, shedding light on poorly-understood gender dynamics in conflict settings, including the shaping of norms and the politicization of societal expectations on men and women. They will also identify the opportunities and obstacles that these dynamics present to the full realization of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda.
