Women and Peace Agreements Database (PA-X Women)
We are pleased and proud to introduce our NEW Women and Peace Agreements Database (PA-X Women).
The database lists all the peace agreements between 1990 and the present day which have provisions on women, gender or sexual violence, and provides full search features for what those provisions deal with. The database is an output from the Political Settlements Research Programme and has been funded by DFID, UK Aid, and UN Women. Background, methodology and acknowledgements and database definitions can be found here.
View all: you can either search, leaving all the boxes below on ‘include all’, or press the ‘view a listing’ button at the bottom of the page.
Search boxes: enable you to select agreements by country/entity, agreement/conflict type, and agreement stage, and to select particular ‘provisions’ included in the peace agreement, from pull-down boxes (up to 7 issues), in any combination. If you do not chose a sub-category, the entire entry for women will be shown. The results page also includes a link to the agreement text. All search results can be viewed as a PDF, or exported to excel for quantitative analysis. Please note the exports take some time, but will download if you wait.
Background information: This database is part of PA-X, a peace agreement database which is intended to operate as a Peace Agreement Access Tool. The full database is scheduled for release in 2017 and will give access to a definitive collection of peace agreements from 1990 to present day, which at present comprise around 1200 peace agreements in around 100 jurisdictions. Its purpose is to enable research on peace agreement provisions, and to support those engaging in peace processes to access comparative information on how peace agreements deal with core issues of inclusion, human rights, and development.
