The UN Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO) commissioned this Independent Thematic Review on Gender to contribute to knowledge building and operational learning about peacebuilding practices.
It is in an independent review and as such the analysis does not necessarily reflect the views of PBSO or any of the UN entities. The author accepts full and final responsibility for the report.
The Terms of Reference for the Review s et out two main areas of work (Annex I).
The first is an external focus to scope ou t in the international domain the emerging good practices in implementing what is increasingly termed ‘gender - responsive peacebuilding’. The second area focuses on the PBSO itself and the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) and its efforts and potential to promote and enhance the implementation of gender - responsive peacebuilding programmes through targeted and mainstreaming approaches.
