Executive Summary

In 2000, UN Security Council Resolution 1325 called for peace agreement implementation to take women’s situation and security into better account and to forward women’s inclusion. Despite this urging, knowledge on how to realize such gender stipulations in an agreement remains limited. For this reason, the international community is following the implementation of the Colombian Final Peace Agreement – a model agreement in terms of including gender stipulations – with interest. But do the promising wordings of this agreement appear to be resulting in actual action? Presenting data from the Barometer Initiative in Colombia, this brief highlights both challenges and opportunities.
