Abstract This Article will discuss the reasons for the shift from the inclusion of women as active participants in the Syrian revolution to their exclusion and marginalization throughout the conflict and during the recent Geneva II peace negotiations.
It will address how the lack of participation of women in such formal negotiations is hindering the peace process, drawing on the role of women, more generally and historically, in conflict resolution.
The Article will provide best practices from prior conflicts and ways in which policymakers can improve participation of women in the peace process in Syria.
The re-inclusion of Syrian women is possible, despite the ongoing conflict. Based on our research, evidence shows that Syrian women are currently participating in informal conflict resolution processes, despite their exclusion in formal processes.

In this Article we will demonstrate and argue that until women have a seat at the negotiation table and the voices of women are heard, any peace agreement reached in Syria will not be a lasting one.
Historically, Syrian women have often been involved, albeit in a limited role, in societal change within Syria. During the Arab Spring, women rose up across the Arab world, including Syria, to protest for change.
Although women were arrested during the initial protests, many continued to flock to the streets and, even still, encouraged more women to get involved. The various roles that women play in conflict are not as obvious as those of their male counterparts, but women often affect change in ways that many men do not even realize.
Peace agreements and reconstruction work better when women are involved in the peacebuilding process. Bringing women to the peace table improves the quality of agreements reached, enhancing the chances that they are successfully implemented.
Only recently have there been peace negotiations that reached this thirty percent benchmark. If the thirty percent quota is a true U.
Research is needed to determine the best ways to involve women in the formal negotiations, as well as to encourage their involvement at the local level.
A deeper analysis must be made considering the participation of women in peace processes from previous conflicts in order to better incorporate women in these processes in Syria.Domestic Violence Thesis Statement Domestic violence is characterized as consistently abusive conduct by one individual against another involved in an intimate relationship, for A necessary to clearly state from the introduction that you have a particular point of view on domestic violence which is new and important.
