Promoting women's roles in peace and security

Women, peace and security: NATO, UNSCR 1325 and related Resolutions

Women, peace and security: NATO, UNSCR 1325 and related Resolutions

NATO and its partners are taking action to promote the role of women in peace and security. This demonstrates their commitment to support the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 and related Resolutions (1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, 2122 and 2422). These Resolutions recognise the disproportionate impact that war and conflict has on women and children and highlight the fact that historically women have been left out of peace processes and stabilisation efforts. They call for full and equal participation of women at all levels ranging from conflict prevention to post-conflict reconstruction, peace and security. They call for the prevention of sexual violence and accountability to end impunity for incidents of sexual violence in conflict. Together, these resolutions frame the Women, Peace and Security agenda.

    • The Building Integrity Programme and Gender 04 Jun. 2015 Both Building Integrity and NATO’s support for the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, launched in 2007, are cross-cutting and require an innovative and flexible approach. They contribute to NATO’s crisis prevention and conflict management resolution. The two initiatives have developed a close synergy, trading best practice and sharing expertise.
    • Women, Peace and Security 22 Sep. 2010 War and conflict often affect women and children more than men. Recognizing the important role women play in building peace, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 on 31 October 2000. The Resolution called for an end to the historic inequality of male and female participation in resolving conflicts. This Briefing examines how NATO is working to protect women and children in its areas of operations and to increase the participation of women at every level to prevent future conflicts.

NATO Review

    • Women: paying the price of conflict? 07 Mar. 2013 It is mainly men who wage war. And it is mainly women (and children) who suffer from it. These undeniable facts have led the international community to try to tackle some of the key issues leading to this situation: from fighting gender violence to promoting female role models. But, as this edition sets out, the case for more effort remains compelling.
    • Women in security: a work in progress? 04 Apr. 2013 What more needs to be done to better integrate women in security? And how can men help? We ask some women who know the difficulties what they would change and how they think this could impact the wider world.
    • Women in security: climbing a very long ladder 07 Mar. 2013 What's it like to be a young woman rising up the ranks of the security world? We asked Ioanna Zyga, who has worked at both NATO headquarters and the European Parliament about her experiences - and whether she sees it as still a male-dominated world.
    • View from the top 07 Mar. 2013 Lena Olving is COO for defence and security company Saab. She has also been voted Sweden's most powerful businesswoman. What advice does she have for women who want to make it in security?
    • Women in security: personal stories 07 Mar. 2013 We ask women how they got interested in security issues, whether they've been victims of stereotyping and what personal experiences have struck them.
    • Women's fight in pictures 07 Mar. 2013 Women's fight for better treatment starts early. From lack of education, to gender violence through to being responsible for the next generation, this photostory sets out some of the challenges the world's women face.
    • Women on the frontline 07 Mar. 2013 If you have ever doubted that women suffer most from conflict, this short video will show you some figures that may make you think again.
    • Women and conflict : a frontline issue? 01 Oct. 2010 At a recent event, Patrick Cammaert, Dutch Major General (retired) said: 'It has probably become more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier in armed conflicts'. Woman are, through no fault of their own, on the frontline of many conflicts. They suffer disproportionately (along with children) from the effects of conflict. So we ask, 10 years on from moves to improve women's fortunes, has anything really changed?
