Millennium Fellowship Project: Durability of Peace
It has been 20 years since the UN Security Council passed Resolution 1325, Women, Peace and Security, which put forth a set of recommendations to enhance women's participation at every level of a peace process. Although women's participation has increased, it is far from equal. Durability of Peace seeks to revisit this call to action through research, education, and writing.
The research will analyze the success of past negotiations which involved female negotiators, as well as the sustainability of peace following such a dialogue. Durability of Peace aims to produce a paper which describes a woman's crucial role in peace processes. Drew hopes to conduct at least three academic interviews, and eventually publish the research.
