Project Description

November 2020

This report is based on a series of global interviews, consultations, and meetings with feminist peace activists — the key actors who advocated for the adoption of UNSCR 1325. It documents their assessment of the past 20 years of implementation, and what more must be done to ensure women’s meaningful participation and prevent violence. The report finds that there are three primary challenges to progress on Women, Peace and Security: militarism and militarization; the patriarchal and political underpinnings of the agenda; and lack of accountability for implementation.
