Germany is one of the key donors when it comes to peace and security initiatives through international organisations such as the United Nations (UN) or the European Union, as well as civil society organisations.
Generally, the awareness for an intersectional gender dimension in programmes and projects dealing with peace and security initiatives has increased during the last two decades, also through various funding schemes. By now there exists a relatively comprehensive normative framework around gender, peace and security issues that guides and highlights the different dimensions and entry points to respond to gender specific considerations in peace building, conflict resolution and transitional justice.
This paper outlines such framework in relation and relevance to Germany’s foreign policy and development cooperation. To better understand the effects and impact of Germany’s contribution to the implementation of the women, peace and security agenda on the ground, a total of ten projects funded and supported by ifa’s zivik Funding programme have been reviewed to identify good practices and lessons learned.
