This report examines how to strengthen inclusion of persons with disabilities within peacebuilding practice and identifies some of the key barriers and potential enablers that can overcome these challenges. It draws on practice-based insights from interviews with three experienced peace practitioners with disabilities in the conflict settings of Abkhazia, South Caucasus; Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) in the Philippines; and Mirpur in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The report is aimed at national and international policymakers, mediation and peace process advisers, and practitioners working in conflict-affected contexts.
