Summary/Abstract: This article explores the concept of peace, the conditions necessary for its effective and sustainable implementation, and outlines the latest peace plan for Syria adopted by the United Nations Security Council in December 2015. It indicates that the success of the peace process can be ensured by the participation of civil society, especially women. Recent research increasingly emphasizes the importance of women in the peace-building process. In addition, the sustainability of the peace agreement can be ensured by sentencing those responsible for the most serious international crimes and investing in the construction of efficient democratic institutions that will prevent the collapse of the state.
