Abstract
This thesis is an examination of constructions of women in the comprehensive peace agreement between Sudan and SPLM/A (Sudan People’s Liberation Movement/Sudan People’s Liberation Army) between the years of 2002-2005. The analysis is based in the comprehensive peace agreement and the discourse analysis of the agreement. I use a concept of discourse from the method of critical feminist discourse analysis. In awareness of my positionality as a white person from the global north who writes about women in the global south I have incorporated into the material two articles, one interview and one mail conversation with individuals who are nearer the context and the peace agreement than I am. This is a way of trying to decolonize my thesis... (More)

In awareness of my positionality as a white person from the global north who writes about women in the global south I have incorporated into the material two articles, one interview and one mail conversation with individuals who are nearer the context and the peace agreement than I am. This is a way of trying to decolonize my thesis through the incorporation of situated knowledge as a way of doing inclusion. My theoretichal framework is based in the conceptions of gender just peace, substantial inclusion, private/public space as demarcation of feminized/masculinized space and localisation of peace. The peace agreement constructs women in various way at different places in the text, the constructions and the meaning of them are both maintaining and subversive of gender relations. This indicates a struggle for the power to construct women as subjects in the peace agreement but also in the Sudanese society. (Less)
