A new article by Aisling Swaine of LSE and the PSRP completes the Gender Theme Special Issue of feminists@law, an open access journal of feminist legal scholarship.
The Gender Theme Special Issue draws together findings and analysis from the Political Settlements Research Programme, covering issues of gender, conflict, and inclusion in political settlements.
Aisling Swaine’s article, Re-shaping How Political Settlements Engage with Conflict-Related Violence Against Women, considers when and how peace agreements have adopted a gender perspective, using the PSRP’s PA-X peace agreement database to analyse over 1500 peace and transition agreements from between 1990 and 2016. It goes further to consider how inclusion of women is related to the other forms of political and group inclusion contemplated to form part of the new political settlement.
