This report summarises discussions from a workshop to explore gender relations and equality and Nepal’s transition from war. Focus areas include affirmative gender action in the transition; gender perspectives on security sector reform, access to justice and political participation; gendered experiences, expectations and priorities of marginalised groups; how different identities intersect; and the role of international support. A short case study of the period of intense political change that followed the 2015 earthquakes in Nepal provides an illustrative example of opportunities and challenges. Conciliation Resources is an independent international organisation working with people in conflict to prevent violence, resolve conflicts and promote peaceful societies. Accord spotlight presents a focused analysis of key themes for peace and transition practice.
