In October 2000, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 1325 which recognizes women’s rights in the context of international peace and security.

It stresses the importance of women’s meaningful participation in post-conflict peacebuilding and calls on member states to incorporate a gender perspective in peacekeeping and peacebuilding operations.

The 1325 framework has paved the way for the development of numerous institutions, initiatives and resolutions. Despite these developments – and considering the disproportionate impact of conflict on women – women remain underrepresented in peace processes.

  • What roles do women currently play in peacebuilding processes and how can we maximize cross-learning from their experiences?

  • Why have multilateral and international commitments failed to normalize women’s participation in peace processes?

  • And how do we deconstruct narratives that might suggest women’s participation in peace processes is more legitimate if it is institutional?
