Abstract:

Twenty criteria are used to analyze sixteen national action plans that focus on women, peace and security. United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, a base for the national plans, highlights the terrible consequences of violent conflict on women and girls as well as the important role of women in all peacebuilding processes. Suggestions are made for those developing or revising plans and these include addressing the relevant points from four UN Security Council resolutions (1325, 1820, 1888 and 1889); specifying all processes and timelines; and including civil society participation in all phases of a plan’s development, implementation and assessment.

Topics: Armed Conflict, Gender, Women, Girls, Peacebuilding, Security, Human Security, UN Security Council Resolutions on WPS, UNSCR 1325
