General Women, Peace and Security

The Security Council, by paragraph 16 of its resolution 1325 (2000) of 31 October 2000, invites the Secretary General to carry out a study on the impact of armed conflict on women and girls, the role of women in peace-building and the gender dimensions of peace processes and conflict resolution and to submit a report to the Council on the results of that study. The present report is submitted pursuant to that request.

The study on women, peace and security builds on existing research and inputs of the United Nations, its programmes, funds and specialized agencies, Member States, scholars and local and international non-governmental organizations. The preparation of the study was overseen by the Secretary General's Special Adviser on Gender Issues and Advancement of Women in close cooperation with the Inter-Agency Task Force on Women, Peace and Security.
