The PeaceWomen 1325 E-Newsletter is an electronic newsletter sent out on a monthly basis. We have over 114 E-News in our archives, which have been issued monthly for over 8 years. The E-Newsletter offers the Project an opportunity and space to update our subscribers, regularly share our work, and provide issue-based advocacy. Government, UN and civil society representatives receive the 1325 PeaceWomen E-Newsletter and rely on it for updates on SCR 1325 and related women, peace and security issues.
In April 2008 we published our 100th Edition of the E-news, which contains some history of the publications. The E-News promotes collaborative relationships and has included regular contributions from UNIFEM and the NGOWG on Women, Peace and Security. The E-News continues to be a valuable space for other organizations and networks to publicize their work. The themes of E-News editions are based on upcoming events at the UN or on events and processes in the world. The E-News subscription levels have increased significantly over time – with thousands of subscribers and redistribution by other services develops.
