The Role of Women in Conflict Resolution: Roundtable Meeting, Istanbul, 19th September 2012

This report details the discussion that took place in Istanbul, Turkey on 19th September 2012 regarding the role that women can play in conflict resolution. Women are crucial stakeholders in peacebuilding and democratic reform and yet they are too often side-lined because of entrenched gender biases. We hope that this record of the discussions that took place during this roundtable will provide a step towards tackling issues surrounding gender bias and help to shed some light on the importance of women in conflict resolution.
