How are transitions from war to peace made? Who has the power to make peace? Who decides the content of that peace? Equal Power – Lasting Peace is about women’s participation in peace processes and the particular challenges of building a gender-equal peace after violent conflict. As the quote above from a Bosnian woman peace activist illustrates, gender, power and peace are intimately connected. It is the aim of Equal Power – Lasting Peace to explore these interconnections and contribute to a better understanding of the power gaps that are preventing women from participating in peace processes.
