Description and results


This project aims 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 focuses on the risks of political exclusion and the opportunities for inclusion in different conflicts around the world. The project also works to 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. The project works to 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.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased awareness and knowledge among key stakeholders on how exclusion exacerbates violent conflict; (2) greater understanding of how policymakers and others can facilitate more inclusive, gender responsive approaches to conflict; and (3) strengthened international action and policies to support inclusive peace processes and political transitions.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of the project (February 2023) include: (1) issued more than 37 gender-sensitive analyses and policy recommendations, and 41 rapid response publications. These analyses, policies, and recommendations include various conflict situations in countries such as Afghanistan, Cameroon, Colombia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Mali, Myanmar, Sudan, The West bank and Gaza, Ukraine, Venezuela, and Yemen; (2) organized12 in-depth policy discussions on women’s peace and security agenda and countering violent extremism in countries such as Afghanistan, Cameroon, Colombia, Lebanon, South Sudan, Venezuela, and Ukraine; and (3) improved understanding among influential conflict stakeholders of emerging or rapidly escalating conflict risks and inclusive policy options to prevent, resolve or mitigate deadly conflict.
