Inaugural Annual ICLQ Lecture

Peace negotiations and Gender Justice: Women and UNSC 1325

19th May 2011

Peace negotiations and Gender Justice: Women and UNSC 1325

In 2000, United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 was adopted, providing for a range of measures aimed at the inclusion of women in the prevention, management and resolution of conflict. Several of the resolution's provisions addressed the role of women and gender in peace negotiations and agreements. This lecture explores whether and how Resolution 1325 has impacted on the drafting of peace agreements, and discusses the dilemmas for women seeking to impact on peace agreement drafting. Christine Bell uses findings and analysis from a comprehensive review of peace agreement texts to address the relationship of feminist intervention to international law.


When founded in 1952, the ICLQ was the only journal which offered the reader coverage of comparative law as well as public and private international law. Since then it has maintained its pre-eminence as one of the most important journals of its kind and it continues to offer practitioners and academics wide topical coverage without compromising rigorous editorial standards.

Under the general editorship of Professor Catherine Redgwell and Professor Robert McCorquodale, the journal continues to attract scholarship of the highest standard from around the world. Articles are submitted by both members and non-members of the Institute and the Editors continue to welcome contributions which are selected on the basis of excellence, reflecting the independence of the Quarterly and the Institute as a whole.

The inaugural ICLQ lecture is a celebration of 60 years as the flagstone publication of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.
