No Women No Peace

When the UK and USA entered Afghanistan in 2001, they promised to improve the lives of Afghan women. In the past ten years, some progress has been made, especially in the areas of education, the right to work and increased freedom of movement outside the home.

Women’s Voices and the Colombian Peace Process: We Must Sweep away the Culture of War - Latin America Working Group. Colombian Peace Talks on the Horizon. Tonight Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos confirmed the rumors that crested and then exploded after former President Alvaro Uribe tweeted that President Santos had authorized secret peace talks in Havana between government authorities and the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC), Colombia’s largest guerrilla group.

Colombian Peace Talks on the Horizon

In reality, the rumors had been bubbling beneath the surface for months, and in recent weeks, peace talks had emerged as a recurring theme on the editorial pages. When Telesur, RCN Radio, and Reuters broke the story earlier today that the Colombian government and the FARC had signed an agreement in Havana to open peace talks in Oslo, it seemed to force Santos’s hand. In a parallel development, this morning Reuters released a video interview with Nicolás Rodríguez (aka “Gabino,”), the head of the ELN, Colombia’s second largest guerrilla organization. Gabino reiterated the ELN’s interest in pursuing talks with the Santos government as well. —By Virginia M.

UN Women applauds appointment of women to Colombia's peace negotiating team

We applaud this deliberate effort by President Santos to bring greater gender balance to his negotiating team to bring peace to Colombia. News, Information and Connections for Action. By Anastasia Moloney BOGOTA (AlertNet) - A decade after the last attempt to end Latin America's longest-running insurgency failed, the Colombian government and the country’s largest rebel group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) are to sit down at the negotiating table in the Norwegian capital Oslo later this month.

They will begin to thrash out thorny issues such as victims’ rights, land ownership and cocaine production, in the hope of ending Colombia’s nearly 50-year-old war. But there is a notable omission. There are no women on the government’s chief negotiating team. The Pan-American Post: Colombia Names Women to Negotiating Team as Peace Talks Shift to Drugs. Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has appointed two new female members to the government’s official negotiating team with FARC rebels in Havana, a move which some say could ensure that the talks take more gender-related aspects of the armed conflict into account.

The two parties resumed negotiations Thursday on yet another tricky issue on the agenda, illicit crop cultivation and drug trafficking. One of the appointments, that of Nigeria Renteria, was first reported on November 23, when members of the administration told the press that she would replace Luis Carlos Villegas, who was moving on to serve as the new Colombian ambassador to the United States. Renteria’s appointment received quite a bit of praise. Women’s Voices and the Colombian Peace Process: We Must Sweep away the Culture of War - Latin America Working Group.

Instructions for the use of CIDA's three main results-based management working tools: the logic model, performance measurement framework, and risk register Introduction What is results-based management (RBM)?

Results-Based Management Tools at CIDA: A How-to Guide - Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD)

Results-based management (RBM) is a life-cycle approach to management that integrates strategy, people, resources, processes, and measurements to improve decision making, transparency, and accountability. The approach focuses on achieving outcomes, implementing performance measurement, learning, and adapting, as well as reporting performance. RBM is: Why results-based management? Historically, government departments—and implementing organizations (IOs)—focused their attention on inputs (what they spent), activities (what they did), and outputs (what they produced).

Modern management requires that we look beyond activities and outputs to focus on actual results: the changes created, and contributed to, by our programming. How is results-based management used at CIDA? The logic model A. B. ¡Colombianos por la PAZ! - Red Nacional Colombianos por la paz. Nobel Women's Initiatives.

But among this rise of women’s voices, have men been silenced? Have they become inherently unqualified to speak as advocates for women’s rights? If so, how could we overcome this ironic paradox?

Wgll backgroundpaper Gender peacebuilding. United States Institute of Peace. By Kathleen Kuehnast Is carrying a gun the only way for women to get a place at the peace table? This may be a provocative question, but most negotiations are dominated by men, many of whom were once active combatants. What about a peace negotiating table set for those who are going to build the peace, including women? Amid 39 active conflicts over the last 10 years, few women have actually been present at peace negotiations. And out of some 585 peace treaties drafted over the last two decades, only 16 percent contain specific references to women. The absence of women from formal peace negotiations is all the more astonishing given the fact that women are increasingly parties to conflicts. In Sudan, for example, women and girls played active roles on the front lines of the two north-south civil wars, both as combatants and peace activists. When it comes to settling conflicts, we know that many more creative ways exist than simply picking up a gun and threatening your enemy.

Peacebuilding and gender / women. “For generations, women have served as peace educators, both in their families and in their societies. They have proved instrumental in building bridges rather than walls” Former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan The participation of women is critical to the success of any peacebuilding process – if half the population is excluded or faces discrimination, peace will be impossible to achieve (pdf).

Women peacebuilders bring different perspectives and priorities to men, and their role in re-establishing the social fabric in the aftermath of conflict is vital. The role of women in peacebuilding is recognised in many international agreements and resolutions, and the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize, awarded to Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Leymah Gbowee and Tawakkol Karman, was public recognition for the impact of women peacebuilders.
