Gender and International Negotiations

What is the impact of gender on international negotiation and peace mediation?
The project is funded by the Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences.

In 2000, the United Nations adopted Security Council resolution 1325, which underlines the important role of women in negotiations and peace-building.

Although women are still underrepresented as negotiators and mediators in the international arena, a gradual increase has occurred in the last decades.

Our aim is to investigate this trend, and to study the significance of gender for the processes and outcomes of international negotiations.

In recent years, the research on gender in international relations has made significant progress. Still, very few studies apply gender theory to the principal mode of collective decision-making at the international level - negotiations.
