Advancing the Women, Peace and Security agenda: 2015 and beyond


This is a report from The Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Centre written by Laura J. Shepherd

Since the adoption of UNSCR 1325, progress on the WPS agenda has been deeply inconsistent. This expert analysis evaluates the current state of the agenda, with a particular focus on three themes drawn from the most recent UNSC resolution (S/RES/2122): the articulation of a whole-of-UN mandate for improving performance in the implementation of UNSCR 1325; the importance of civil society inclusion; and the upcoming High-Level Review that will take place in 2015, on the 15th anniversary of the adoption of UNSCR 1325.
