Since we had worked with the Kroc Institute in the past, we already knew the goals and intentions of the organization. In addition, the client was comfortable working at Drupal, and the platform was well suited to their PAM-related needs. We also knew that we had an interesting problem to solve in terms of research, and how the agreements and provisions worked together, but it is important to remember that these are not your average daily data. It can literally influence change and bring about peace. In the negotiations and implementation of the peace agreement, the importance of women at the negotiating table and gender arrangements in peace agreements has also increased in importance. While expectations of participation and inclusion to achieve gender equality have increased, experience and evidence show that implementing the WPS agenda remains a challenge. Here is the scenario: two groups are facing serious conflicts and are trying to find a solution. A peace negotiator is involved to help them express their needs and hopefully to reach a point of solution. Is there a standard language for a particular aspect of the agreement? What has been negotiated and used by others in the past? On 31 October 2000, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS). Twenty years later, the UN Secretary-General`s report on the WPS stresses that the resolution places women`s participation at the centre of peace efforts and that the United Nations and its member states would now make a clear commitment to promoting women`s rights and gender equality in all efforts to resolve conflicts. Since the end of the Cold War, hundreds of agreements, including 34 comprehensive peace agreements, have been signed by combatants engaged in armed conflicts around the world.
Many have been plunged into a violent confrontation since then. Some have followed the impasse, the economic struggle and the crime. Others have led to lasting peace. What makes the difference? How can we improve the chances of a peace process succeeding? This webin provides an overview of the progress and challenges facing aspects of the WPS in negotiating, designing and implementing peace agreements. Contributors will present data, research and experiences from policy development over the past 20 years to better understand the impact of field efforts. The data from the previous site was hard to find and clumsy compared to today`s solutions. With our expertise in art articulationing clear goals in terms of design, development, information architecture and user experience, all this vital data is now much easier to find. We have removed some of the technological barriers to enable researchers, negotiators and scientists to quickly and easily find what they are looking for, regardless of the device they are using, and to promote peace around the world. WFP is a unique source of longitudinal qualitative and quantitative data on the implementation of comprehensive peace agreements negotiated since 1989. PAM is made up of researchers and practitioners who want to promote and facilitate a greater order of integration between these areas. One of the main features of WFP is the barometer initiative in Colombia, which is responsible for real-time technical assistance and monitoring the implementation of the 2016 peace agreement in Colombia. The Peace Accords Matrix (PAM) of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies Program at the University of Notre Dame is a strong source of qualitative and quantitative data on peace agreements around the world.
