Implementation of successful measures and processes for UN Security Council Resolution 1325

UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on "Women, Peace and Security" and its successor resolutions strive for the equal participation of women in political processes and institutions in the management and prevention of conflicts as well as the special protection of women and girls in war zones. However, there are major differences in the implementation of national multilateral foreign, development and security policies, and a number of various "best practices" in that regard.

The project, which is funded by the German Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt), prepares and implements a planning staff workshop on gender-sensitive policies and the implementation of UNSCR 1325. The workshop will target the planning staffs of those foreign ministries that are particularly successful in implementing gender-sensitive security and peace policy and that have systematically implemented UNSCR 1325 as a cross-cutting issue in their ministry/organization. The aim of the planning staff workshop is to develop practical ideas for a systematic and sustainable implementation of the agenda on women, peace and security.

The project is carried out by PRIF in cooperation with GAIC Gender Associations International Consulting GmbH.
