Women’s Inclusion and Equity

Under the Transitional Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan, 2011

Conflict Dynamics’ initiative “Beyond Quotas and Mainstreaming: Gender and Political Accommodation in South Sudan” supported women in their efforts to ensure their interests are accommodated in South Sudan’s governance arrangements, as a precondition for sustainable peace.

To support women’s discussions on how they can effectively feed their views into the national constitutional review process, Conflict Dynamics published this Briefing Note. The note reviews provisions of the Transitional Constitution of the Republic of South Sudan 2011 (TCRSS) relevant to how women’s interests are accommodated, and identifies some of the challenges women face in achieving equitable treatment in governance in South Sudan. This note also accompanied Conflict Dynamics’ presentation on comparative country experiences at the South Sudan National Women’s Conference (May 2013).
