Executive Summary

This document is based on an examination of Swisspeace and KOFF activities relating to gender and peacebuilding. The purpose of this publication is, firstly, to illustrate how the topic of gender and peacebuilding has developed in Switzerland, drawing on examples from Swisspeace and/or KOFF, and to make the experiences gained from this accessible to a wider audience. Secondly, it aims to pinpoint where the issue of gender currently stands within the context of peacebuilding, harness the conceptual and operational achievements of UN Resolution 1325 (in a political sense), and stimulate debate.
