Introducing the PeaceFem App

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.

A contribution to the growing field of PeaceTech, which uses technology to support peacebuilding, including peace mediation, PeaceFem brings together data on women and peacemaking in one easy-to-use app in English and Arabic. Intended for use by women’s rights advocates, mediation and negotiation teams, as well as other actors working in peace and security, the app contains strategies for influencing peace processes, as well as the resulting gender-sensitive provisions in peace agreements and data on their implementation.

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