Structural Violence- social structures (ie. economic, political..) that stop individuals, or groups from reaching their full potential. Hunger and poverty are examples of structural violence; ie. the inequities in our systems, the systematic ways our structures can be human rights abusing, preventing people from getting their basic human needs.. Structural violence is interconnected with other violence and can cause economic, psychological, behavioural, and physical manifestations.

Shevolution- (term suggested by reader Tim Symonds)  a neologism invented by British gender/post-conflict specialist Lesley Abdela circa 1985. Shevolution is the outcome of a process where women and men have equal authority in the way programmes are developed and progressed. In the instance of peacebuilding it would be the result if UNSCR1325 and the susbequent sister Resolutions 1820, 1888, 1889 were completely enforced in all deadly conflict situations.
