A Case Study Assessment
In 2009, the MIT Center for International Studies and the International Civil Society Action Network (ICAN) initiated a six‐country field study (Aceh, Colombia, Liberia, Middle East, Sri Lanka and Uganda) to assess whether and how efforts were made by key actors (governments, NGOs, and international organizations) to include women in peacemaking, and to ensure gender sensitivity in peace accords and recovery processes. A critical dimension of the project was to return to women in conflict zones to capture their voices and experiences regarding the actual and potential relevance and impact of UNSCR 1325 and related activities in their countries.
