Women in South-Sudan`s national peace processes, 2005-2018.
Fersk rapport fra Oxfam om kvinners deltakelse i Fredsprosessen i Sør Sudan.
South Sudanese women have played critical roles in efforts to achieve peace in South Sudan, yet
their contributions have been under-recognized and under-documented. This paper contributes to
remedying this by sharing women’s stories of their roles in peace making through the Comprehensive
Peace Agreement (2005), the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (2015) and
the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (2018). It utilizes the
‘Broadening Participation’ framework, developed by Thania Paffenholz, to compare various modalities
of participation, and contributes to critical discussions about factors that have contributed to, and
hindered, women’s meaningful participation in building peace in South Sudan. See the briefing note
Born to Lead: Recommendations on increasing women’s participation in South Sudan’s peace
process (Oxfam and Born to Lead, 2020) for related policy recommendations.
