What shall an international post-COVID-19 settlement look like? In this publication, six feminist principles for a post-COVID-19 recovery is being presented.

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.
This report highlights the compounded risks facing women’s rights and feminist organisations, and is designed to provide multi-disciplinary stakeholders and activists at both regional and international levels with a concrete set of recommendations to adopt inclusive and responsive policies, with the overall aim of advancing the stability and progress of feminist organisations, movements, and agendas in the MENA region.
