Gendered alternatives: Gender- and conflict-sensitive framework for policy makers to engage with non-state governance actors

Secretariat of the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law

This framework is a guideline for policymakers to engage with non-state governance actors in a gender- and conflict-sensitive way. There are important challenges for policymakers and practitioners working in Fragile and Conflict Affected Settings (FCAS), one of which is working with non-state actors. These non-state actors in FCAS in some cases act as spoilers, while other examples illustrate they can provide governance in the absence of a functioning state. This policy framework explicitly focusses on the instances where non-state actors provide governance.
