According to the Women, Peace, and Security Act of 2017: "Congress makes the following findings: (1) Around the world, women remain under-represented in conflict prevention, conflict resolution, and post-conflict peace building efforts. (2) Women in conflict-affected regions have achieved significant success in— (A) moderating violent extremism; (B) countering terrorism; (C) resolving disputes through nonviolent mediation and negotiation; and (D) stabilizing societies by enhancing the effectiveness of security services, peacekeeping efforts, institutions, and decision-making processes. (3) Research suggests that peace negotiations are more likely to succeed and to result in durable peace agreements when women participate in the peace process."

This research guide is not a comprehensive listing of sources, but is intended to be a starting point from which students can begin their research according to their specific needs.
