Indigenous women and Colombia’s peace process

Jun 2017
This report explores the historic experience of indigenous women in Colombia – a group usually absent from political decision-making processes – and how formal and customary institutions impact their inclusion in Colombia’s political settlement. It charts the emergence of different pathways for change for indigenous women, including the evolution of women’s engagement in the Colombian peace process as well as the inclusion of gender and ethnic minority issues in negotiations. The report looks at how the peace process is an opportunity for indigenous women to play a key role in peacebuilding and the reconfiguration of the political settlement in Colombia.

Processing peace in Afghanistan

Jun 2017
The Salang Pass, a key mountain pass connecting northern Afghanistan with Kabul and the country's southern provinces.
This Accord spotlight summarises discussions from a workshop to explore priorities for peace in Afghanistan. It looks at six key themes; peacemaking in perspective, terminology, inclusion, understanding divisions, re-centring the regional stage and processing peace. Linking all the themes is the recurring concern that contextual understanding should be central to designing an appropriate peace architecture for Afghanistan. As one workshop participant emphasised, ‘Afghanistan is currently experiencing not just one war, but many: any attempt to promote peace will need to recognise and address these wars as discrete but interconnected components of a conflict system’. The report is written by Anna Larson, Issue Editor of the forthcoming Accord Afghanistan publication and Senior Teaching Fellow at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London
