UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security emphasises the importance of women’s perspectives and gender mainstreaming in peacebuilding. The peace process on the island of Ireland has been known for the role of women at the negotiation table as well as in community relations. Women’s civil society organisations North and South of the border have been consulted in the creation of the Irish government’s successive National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security. However, there are ongoing significant challenges for greater representation of diverse perspectives, such as gender, to be part of the key agenda for sharing this island. The consociational settlement in Northern Ireland has emphasised ethnicity over gender in politics, women continue to be underrepresented in the politics of peace across the island and current mainstreaming approaches neglect the perspectives of people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. This ISE at 50 webinar explores the challenges and opportunities for gender and peacebuilding on a shared island. In the roundtable webinar, chaired by Gillian Wylie (Trinity College Dublin), we are fortunate to be able to draw on the depth of wisdom and range of expertise embodied in our contributors: Bronagh Hinds (DemocraShe); Georgia Knapp (Irish Secretariat in Belfast, DFA); Salome Mbugua (Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission); Niall Gilmartin (Ulster University); Katherine Meyer (Christ Church, Sandymount).

This webinar, ‘Gender and Peacebuilding on a Shared Island’ is part of the webinar series to celebrate Irish School of Ecumenics – ISE at 50. ISE was founded in 1970 by Fr. Michael Hurley, with a vision of a place where people from diverse backgrounds and disciplinary perspectives could explore the meaning and possibilities of peace and reconciliation together. ISE continues to uphold Fr. Hurley’s vision as an academic institute in Trinity College Dublin.
