Peace and Security Policy Needs a Gender Perspective

The Gunda Werner Institute is particularly involved in a peace politics that is appropriate for gender and security policy, because until now this field has been largely male-dominated. Draughts and strategies fail to consider gender as an important issue; women’s voices hardly seem to be present in discussions about war, conflict prevention or peace negotations; and, women and men share different perspectives on forcible conflict holdings. Therefore, a lasting peace politics and security policy must include a gender perspective.
