Sustainable peace is inextricably linked with gender equality.

How have gender perspectives informed disarmament measures? What can be done to advance gender mainstreaming in arms control processes?

These were some of the main questions guiding the discussions at a regional workshop organized by UNIDIR in Entebbe, Uganda. Drawing on the expertise and experience of diplomats, military officers, civil society practitioners, and academics, this report offers ideas to promote gender perspectives in arms control, as well as to improve women's participation in international security.
