Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study examines the “two-level games”–that is, the interaction between domestic politics and foreign policy–in the gendering of the peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC). It analyzes the domestic pressures that drove the formulation and incorporation of a gender perspective in the negotiations with the FARC, and how this gender dimension was incorporated in the Colombian government’s foreign policy strategy. The goal is to understand the entanglement of domestic and international preferences in the gendering of the peace agreement. By doing so, this article contributes to feminist literature on foreign policy and peacebuilding.
