Wednesday October 20 2010 Diplomatic Academy of Vienna
Addressing The Challenge: UNSCR 1325 on women, peace and security and its successor resolutions build on two pillars: the recognition of violence against women in situations of armed conflict, and the importance of the inclusion of women in conflict prevention, conflict resolution and peace building. Although the first pillar has received ample attention, the second pillar is still lacking an analysis of approaches, experiences, and policy-relevant demands.
