Women, Peace and Security: Opportunities and Challenges in the Implementation of UN Resolution 1325
Strengthening the Women and Peace and Security Agenda is one of the main focuses of Germany’s membership in the UN Security Council in 2019/20. The aim of UN Resolution 1325 is to involve women in all phases of crisis prevention, conflict management and peacebuilding, to strengthen their role in peace processes and to protect them from sexual violence in (post-) conflicts and in refugee contexts. Together we like to share and discuss: What has been achieved in the past 20 years since the adoption of Resolution 1325? How does the participation of women in peace processes, but also in armed combat operations, change the dynamics of such processes? To what extent has the Federal Government built on pioneers such as Sweden and what important impulses has Germany provided during its membership in the UN Security Council so far? What will remain after 2020?
