Secretary General releases report on Women, Peace and Security

Eleven years ago, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1325, which recognised the disproportionate impact of war and conflict on women and children. For a number of years now, NATO Allies have been cooperating on this issue with their Euro-Atlantic partners in the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, which has developed a policy on implementing UNSCR 1325.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen released his first annual report detailing NATO’s work to support the implementation of Resolution 1325 on Thursday 17 November 2011.

The report reflects the commitment by NATO Allies and partners to make the principles of UNSCR 1325 an integral part of their everyday business, including their political, civilian and military structures, and their operations and missions. It focuses on the six-track approach implemented after Allied leaders agreed at the 2010 Lisbon Summit to underscore NATO’s work on Resolution 1325.

The report details the progress made in each of the six areas: operations; mainstreaming UNSCR 1325 in policies; programmes and documentation; cooperating with other international organizations, non-governmental organizations and civil society; education and training; public diplomacy; and national initiatives.
