Executive Summary

The Center for Global Affairs of the School of Professional Studies (CGA) at the New York University and the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders (GNWP) have partnered to create a research-based practicum project for NYU students. During the first practicum in the Fall of 2019, five students from the Master’s in Global Affairs program at CGA worked in teams to address research questions that emerged from GNWP’s work and research on current and past peace processes, and women’s roles in peacebuilding and sustaining peace. Using quantitative and qualitative analysis, the students examined the effect of women’s participation in peace negotiations and gender-sensitive provisions in peace agreements on women’s political representation and economic empowerment post-conflict.
