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. The 'text box' search enables you to enter words for a search across agreement text, please note however, not all of the agreement texts may have been fully uploaded in searchable form.
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 late 2017 and will give access to a definitive collection of peace agreements from 1990 to present day, which at present comprise around 1500 peace agreements in around 150 peace processes. 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.
Terms and conditions of useage, and disclaimers: These can be viewed here. As the nature of the subject-matter means that the data is subject to change, with new agreements being added as they are found, the data on this database is subject to change, but reflects our most uptodate data at any time.
