PeaceFem App

A contribution to the growing field of peace tech that utilises technology to advance peace. Created through a partnership between Inclusive Peace, the Political Settlements Research Programme, and Monash University, the PeaceFem App brings together available data on women and gender provisions in peace negotiations and implementation in one easy-to-use app in English and Arabic.

PeaceFem is a mobile phone app that illustrates women’s inclusion in peace processes around the world. PeaceFem provides information about strategies women’s rights advocates have used to influence peace agreements, information about the enabling and constraining factors that shaped the space for influence, and the gender provisions in the peace agreements that resulted and information as to how well they were implemented.

The app is intended for use by women’s rights advocates, mediation and negotiation teams, and other actors working in peace and mediation processes.

The app draws on PA-X peace agreement data from the University of Edinburgh, and 30 case studies developed by Inclusive Peace and Monash University’s Gender, Peace and Security Centre.
