This brief explores why women's role in peace-building is critical in South Sudan, and argues that the current peace-building phase offers an opportunity for promoting gender equity, advancing the position of women in the society, mainstreaming women's perspectives in all the pillars of peace-building and increasing their participation in leadership.

The struggle for women's equal citizenship rights and entitlements in Sudan remains to be led and often raised by Sudanese women's movements. Nonetheless, the women's movement struggles with layers of obstacles such as the limited space for civil activism that presents a major hindrance, in addition to women's movement challenges of technical capacity and poor access resources.
Human Rights Watch,
In April and May of this year in central Unity, government forces, especially allied armed militia from the Bul Nuer ethnic group, killed, beat, and raped scores of civilians, burned homes and food stocks. The repeated attacks on civilians and the destruction of the homes and food they needed to survive caused systematic and widespread forced displacement.
Human Rights Watch
Over the course of 36 hours beginning on October 30, 2014, Sudanese army troops carried out a series of attacks against the civilian population of the town of Tabit in North Darfur, Sudan. The attacks included the mass rape of women and girls and the arbitrary detention, beating and ill-treatment of scores of people, according to Human Rights Watch.

Ikke mer fred å få
Ingen viktige fredsavtaler er inngått i verden de siste åtte årene. De fleste «intern-konflikter» er ikke det de gir seg ut for å være. De er deler av internasjonale konfliktsystemer der eksterne aktører spiller helt sentrale roller, skriver Gunnar M. Sørbø i en utenriksanalyse i Morgenbladet.
