This guide provides a framework for working on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from a feminist peace perspective. It is designed to help activists leverage the SDGs for conflict prevention and human security, by working with governments and others in civil society.
Our recently released report with LSE WPS, Where are the Words?, shows that Women, Peace and Security resolutions are not being translated into country-specific resolutions. This guide accompanies the report and aims to support activists to strengthen their advocacy and understandings of the UN Security Council and take steps towards holding the UN system accountable for its commitments on the WPS Agenda.
This is a guide on how we can document and analyse the underlying causes of the challenges our communities face in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. It highlights key aspects of the responses we need to be paying attention to: inequalities, community need and public interest, economic consequences and bail-out programmes, disaster capitalism, violence, militarisation and repression, and acts of solidarity.
As part of the global Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, WILPF has been at the forefront of calling for a treaty banning autonomous weapons. “Killer robots” are fully autonomous weapon systems. There are significant gender-related implications for killer robots, which WILPF has also highlighted consistently through its advocacy and research.
We believe that feminist political economy analysis is the key to understanding the underlying causes of conflict and war, and for transforming political, social and economic structures. The guide builds a cohesive understanding of how a feminist political analysis is a powerful tool for peace. We use our analysis to create dialogues with major multilateral power institutions. These discussions are a basis for moving towards sustainable changes in peace processes through the Women Peace and Security agenda.
Published ahead of the 2019 non-permanent Security Council Members beginning their tenure, this guidance note provides specific guidance to Security Council Members on how to promote a Feminist Security Council Agenda that works for all. It presents means to strengthen existing mechanisms and builds on good practices to start shifting from militarised security towards sustainable feminist peace. It also outlines recommendations and modalities for Council Members to achieve that goal by envisioning what a Feminist Security Council could look like.
This is a guide on how feminist political economy can strengthen feminist analysis of root causes to conflict and help envision pathways to sustainable peace. Our intention is that this publication can help guide practitioners in their discussions and feminist political economy analysis of conflict and post-conflict contexts.
This resource guide on the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty serves as an explanatory document to the treaty. It addresses the gendered aspects of nuclear power and discusses the presentation of gender in the treaty itself.
