The Center for Security Studies (CSS) features a blog by Joanna Gasser that demonstrates the its Women, Peace and Security agenda has shown mixed results. While it is possible to report some small gains in the number of women mediators in high-level positions, we are still at the beginning of a long journey. The growth of women mediators’ networks can be seen in this context. While these networks do seem to help professionalize women mediators and create linkages, they also face challenges. For example, these include issues related to the selection of mediators and the sustainability and linkages between networks. This provocative blog explores the reasons for the growth of women mediators’ networks, and attempts a tentative analysis of where we stand in order to provide ideas for future efforts.
