Comment

In 2012, UN Women published a report (Women’s Participation in Peace Negotiations: Connections between Presence and Influence) which used a sample of 31 peace negotiations to assess the proportion of women who participate in these processes. This was very low until the late 2000s (around 10% of the negotiators, signatories, and witnesses) and before 2008 there were no women among the head mediators. Negotiations held at the end of this period (2008-2011) show an improvement, with the proportion of women varying from 20 to 30% depending on particular cases and functions.
