The United States Institute of Peace released this report which examines the implementation of UNSCR 1325, its accomplishments and its potential for further action in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, the Palestinian territories, and Tunisia fifteen years after its creation in the Security Council.  To achieve a thorough analysis, one-on-one interviews were conducted of female and male academics, activists, government officials, and nongovernmental leaders. The report proposes recommendations applicable to the Middle East and North Africa region and aims to deepen the acknowledgment of a link between advancing gender equality and creating sustainable national security and peace.
