Other Security Council Work

Does the Security Council include Women, Peace and Security concerns in its other work? This section provides space to address other kinds of issues. 

One important issue is Security Council sanctions.

In 2015-2016, the Security Council affirmed that sexual violence, torture, and rape threaten peace and security and are grounds for sanctions in Somalia, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic (CAR).  However, in the WILPF's focus countries, including DRC, Libya, and Yemen, the sanctions regimes are gender-blind.
