Women are recognized signatories to the Revitalised Agreement for the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS). South Sudan has also put in place policy frameworks and institutions in support of the women, peace and security agenda. If South Sudan is to achieve sustainable peace and fulfil the R-ARCSS, measures that promote women’s participation and tackle associated barriers should be adopted.
A study carried out in Juba-South Sudan by the Women’s International
Peace Centre shows that sustainable peace in South Sudan depends on the full implementation of gender provisions within the R-ARCSS.
The study examined the extent to which gender has been mainstreamed in the implementation of the revitalized peace agreement.
This Policy Brief highlights the barriers to the full implementation of the R-ARCSS and shares recommendations.
