PSRP Women & Peace Agreements Database launch

The Political Settlements Research Programme (PSRP) launched its new Women and Peace Agreements Database (PA-X Women). The database is available at:

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 background, methodology and acknowledgements can be found here. Database definitions can be found here.

This database comprises part of PA-X (Project 3.1), a peace agreement database which is intended to operate as a Peace Agreement Access Tool. This database will give access to a definitive collection of peace agreements from 1990 to the present day, which at present comprises around 1200 peace agreements in around 100 jurisdictions.

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. The full database is scheduled for publication at the start of 2017.

The Women and Peace Agreement Database (PA-X Women) is a sub-database of all the agreements which include an explicit reference to women and gender, with searchable sub-categories. Initial research drawing on PA-X Women is published here.
