Women are alarmingly underrepresented in negotiations. In 2009, the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) found in a review of 21 major peace processes held since 1992 that women were less than 8 percent of the delegates to talks and less than 3 percent of agreement signatories. This publication documents two of Inclusive Security’s consultative efforts (supporting women negotiators working to bring about peace in Uganda and in Darfur) to increase the presence and influence of women in peace talks.
