In June 2015, the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, in partnership with the Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Centre (NOREF), convened the inaugural workshop of the “Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and Planet” project. The three-day workshop, held in Oslo, Norway, brought together a diverse international group of feminist scholars, policy makers, and partitioners, with the aim of identifying the most important transnational actors, processes, and dynamics shaping the prospects for sustainable peace in countries emerging from armed conflict. Two areas highlighted in this report, the rebuilding of physical infrastructure and the deepening of extractivism, shed light on the limits of the current Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda; the discussions explored suggestions for a more inclusive and sustainable path forward.
