    Cote d'ivoire Gender-Based Vilolence Conflict and The Political Transition
    Editeurs: 

    Armed conflicts are not indifferent to male and female gender considerations. The enlistment of fighters; the armed groups’ composition; the repertory of perpetrated violence; the targeted populations; the individual, collective and strategic choices taken in wars; and the roles taken by or assigned to men and women during time of hostility are aspects of armed conflicts that are strongly linked to a gender perspective. Therefore, peace negotiations and conflict resolution should allow for gender considerations.

    Gender-Based Violence And Peace Processes In West Africa
    Editeurs: 

    This study offers West African mediators a first insight on which issues regarding gender-based violence should be taken into account in a peace process. It is not a concrete toolkit, but a conflict analysis, which suggests how the current context could be analysed from a perspective of gender and women when the mediation strategy is being defined. The study highlights how local, national, and transnational conflict constellations frequently overlap, and how it is imperative to consider the role of women within all these different layers.

    Lessons Learned from Mediation Processes
    Editeurs: 

    Mediation is a dynamic process. When a mediation process begins, it is impossible to tell what it will look like in the end. Regardless of the mediators’ competence, the success of mediation fundamentally depends on how well the warring parties receive and take ownership of the process. In this regard, mediation is a very limited tool.
