This lecture discusses issues of international peace agreements in Ohio, not far from Dayton, which is famous as the location of the process that brought an end to the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It also examines issues that were not explored at Dayton, that is, some relationships between gender, peace agreements and international human rights. In addition, because the function of peace agreements in today’s world has become the broader one of societal reconstruction, it also considers the role of gender and human rights in peacebuilding.
