On the 31 October 2000 UNSC Resolution 1325 was adopted. Theresolution provided for a range of measures aimed at the inclusion of womenin the prevention, management and resolution of conflict. In particular,several of the resolution’s provisions addressed the role of women andgender in peace negotiations and agreements. This article examines whetherand how Resolution 1325 has impacted on the drafting of peace agreements.We analyse explicit references to women and gender in peace agreementsfrom 1990 to 2010, providing a quantitative and qualitative assessment of theextent to which women and gender are addressed. We conclude by using ourfindings and analysis to address the relationship of feminist intervention tointernational law, and debates around the strategies and trade-offs whichunderlie feminist promotion and use of UN Security Council Resolutions inparticular.
