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.
