Executive Summary

This paper employs a gender-sensitive analysis not to privlege gender over other dimensions of identity or conflict. Rather, it finds an analysis useful because it has the potential to address questions of identity, difference and power asymmetries which are at the heart of most transitions ushered by the signing of diplomatic agreements. The gender-sensitive analysis enables it to examine not only relations between men and women but also other social relations, particularly those grounded in unequal divisions of power and privilege.
