Torunn L. Tryggestad, Senior Researcher and Director of the PRIO Centre on Gender, Peace and Security, published in January 2016 the following policy brief in the context of the UN and global governance.  

In 2015 was truly ‘a year of reviews’. The Global Study on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (UNSCR 1325) was one of three major peace and security r​eviews completed last year, the other two being the reviews on UN peace operations and UN peacebuilding architecture. This policy brief summarizes some of the main findings and recommendations of the Global Study, and points to some key areas of concern regarding the next phase of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda.​
