Twenty-one years ago, the United Nations unanimously adopted U.N. Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, which requires parties to a conflict to ensure the protection of women and girls as well as the full and meaningful participation of women and girls in conflict resolution. More than two decades later, progress has been made in implementing UNSCR 1325 globally, but more work still needs to be done.
On November 9, USIP and the State Department’s Office of Global Women’s Issues held a fireside chat to commemorate the 21st anniversary of UNSCR 1325. The discussion reflected on progress made on women, peace and security issues and look forward to the years ahead.
