The policy brief is written with the understanding that there is a lack of female representation in the peace building process and strives to find why it is critical to have female representation in peace building, specifically in South Sudan. To do this, the brief explores what opportunities were presented to women within peace building efforts through the Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in the Republic of South Sudan (ARCISS). After, it examines what challenges were presented from female participation in peace building. The article concludes with recommendations that would help to encourage female representation and using the skillset that women can afford to bring peace in South Sudan.
