This Toolkit provides practical guidance to peacebuilding practitioners on gender and conflict analysis. It is based on Conciliation Resources’ experience in conflict-affected contexts and draws on our participatory approach to conflict analysis. The Toolkit was developed over a two-year time frame and involved various members of staff, partners, and numerous external experts.
The gender & conflict analysis toolkit for peacebuilders provides practical guidance to peacebuilding practitioners on using gender and conflict analysis. Integrating gender into conflict analysis can increase the inclusivity and effectiveness of peacebuilding interventions. It does this by enhancing the understanding of underlying gender power relations and how these influence and are affected by armed conflict and peacebuilding. It sheds light on the drivers of conflict, (potential) agents and opportunities for peace, as well as practices of exclusion and discrimination including in peacebuilding interventions themselves.
