       The Gender & Security Seminar Series

About the Series:

The Gender and Security Seminar Series is a public forum to discuss current developments in the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (UN 1325).

Over a decade ago, UN Security Council's ground-breaking resolution UN 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, called for measures to increase women's security and agency in peace building are steadily increasing. To-date, the international community has focused on increasing women's participation in peace-building. However, participation alone does not guarantee gender equality in peace and security initiatives. Policy makers and practitioners need to understand the gendered dimensions of conflict and post-conflict situations in order to put the principles of UN 1325 -- participation, prevention, and protection --into action.

The US unveiled its first National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security in December 2011, and federal agencies are now mandated by an Executive Order on Women, Peace and Security to implement the plan throughout their programs and policies.
