GPPAC's Page on Gender and Women, Peace & Security

The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) advocates for the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women Peace and Security. GPPAC places strong emphasis on the need to recognize, highlight and involve women through their active roles in conflict prevention, as part of any holistic engagement towards sustainable peace. Gender Focal Points support GPPAC regions in mainstreaming gender in the regional work on peacebuilding and conflict prevention and the work of thematic global working groups.

This is a space for peacemakers from all over the world to engage, learn, work and strive towards a holistic Women, Peace and Security agenda. The aim of this community is to enable space and support the participants of GPPAC's advocacy group to share expertise and experience while at the same time highlight their achievements and value within the GPPAC network.

This online community portrays GPPAC's Gender Focal Points and shows their stand on the implementation of Women, Peace and Security. Further, resources are provided, success stories displayed and activities presented.
 

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 recognises the underestimated roles that women play in the prevention and resolution of conflicts, peace negotiations, peace-building, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction.
 

 

As a network, GPPAC advocates for the full implementation of 
UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.

 

We regard the
interpretations of UNSCR 1325 to highlight the prevention of violence against women as victims, 


rather than women as
active agents of change
in preventing conflict.

 

 

 

 

 

We place strong emphasis on the need to recognise, highlight and involve women through their active roles in conflict prevention. Our prevention perspective on UNSCR 1325 is closely linked to advocacy on other relevant policy processes. These include Human Security First, a campaign to highlight people's local perspectives as a basis for engagements on security; and clear commitments to peace and conflict prevention in the post-2015 development agenda.
