Gender, peace and security
UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security represents commitments by states to increase women’s participation in UN peace and security efforts, including peacekeeping operations, conflict resolution and post-conflict reconstruction. From a rights perspective, women’s participation requires no justification: women and men are entitled to the same level of inclusion.
