This paper finds that Pacific women's prominent informal peacebuilding role has not always led to their participation in formal peacebuilding processes. It notes that women's impact on governance and policy-making in the region has received little scrutiny. Further, although gender analyses carried out as part of donor-funded capacity development programmes contain much information on women's participation in Pacific bureaucracies, this material is rarely made public.
