Gender and Peace Commission


Gender and peace comission questions intersection that involves multidimensional problems of contemporary society. Gender dimension of peace, involves question such as feminisation of poverty, rape over women, genocides( Bosnia, Uganda, Ruwanda), feminicides( Mexico, Juarez, Guatemala), queer bushings, trafficing in women, drug cartels, but also cases when women are perpatuator such as girls gang in hypersexualised culture and (as Jennifer Fleetwood alerts in her latest book Drug mules )  asian women trafficers( who rather become trafficers then victims of trafficing). Civil wars around globe, mostly effect women and childern. Genocidal war in Srebrenica influenced the formation of group of Mothers of Srebrenica and ┼Żepa Enclaves. Women are the main peace negotiators and fighters for global peace, and fameous peace agreements such as Zanzibar delaration, Cedaw convention, Beijing platform for action were all raised and signed by women. Feminist contribution to theory of citizenship and solution of ecological problem is similar to idea of cosmopolitan democracy raised by Daniel Archibugi and idea of ecological nationalism as a supranational form of nationalism. Muslim feminists( such as Zilka Šiljak Spahi?) argue against global disemenation of anti muslim propaganda, but also alert on kidnapping of school girls in Abuja, Nigeria. Transitional justice and reconsciliation are the main factors for providing the  global peace and equal rights and gender rights for all.
