What is UNSCR 1325 and GPPAC's perspective on it?
UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) was adopted in October 2000. It is the first resolution on women, peace and security adopted by the UN Security Council, acknowledging the relevance of gender and women's perspectives for international peace and security. The Resolution addressed, for the first time, the disproportionate and unique impact of armed conflict on women. It recognised the underestimated roles that women play in the prevention and resolution of conflicts, peace negotiations, peacebuilding, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction.
The interpretations of UNSCR 1325 often highlight the prevention of violence against women, portraying them as victims, rather active agents of change in preventing conflict!
GPPAC places strong emphasis on the need to recognise, highlight and involve women through their active roles in conflict prevention, mediation and negotiation.
Our prevention perspective on UNSCR 1325 is closely linked to advocacy on other relevant policy processes especially coordination for Human Security, and clear commitments to peace, justice and conflict prevention in the Sustainable Development Goals.
