Report: Perspectives from Feminist Peace Activists on 20 Years of 1325

Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom ( WILPF) has announced the release of their new report: UNSCR 1325 at 20 Years: Perspectives from Feminist Peace Activists and Civil Society.

About the report
This report is based on a series of global interviews, surveys, and consultations with feminist peace activists — the key actors who advocated for the adoption of UNSCR 1325. WILPF conducted these consultations and interviews over the past year. This report documents their assessment of the extent to which Women, Peace and Security (WPS) priorities have been translated into concrete action, identifies key challenges, and provides concrete recommendations at the global and national levels.

Its Findings
The report finds that there are three primary challenges to progress on Women, Peace and Security: 

  1. Militarism and militarisation;

  2. The patriarchal and political underpinnings of the agenda;

  3. And lack of accountability for implementation.
