Recommendations on Women Peace and Security

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Afghanistan will take place on 21 January 2019. For this review, WILPF Afghanistan prepared an advocacy brief addressing the issues of women’s involvement in the peace process, the importance of women’s meaningful participation in the elections, the implementation of Afghanistan’s National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 and gender-based violence, focusing in particular on child marriage, discrimination against women with disabilities and the full and the effective adoption of the Law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW).
