Open Debate on Women, Peace and Security, October 2010

As part of our Security Council Monitor initiative, PeaceWomen has extracted and organized the women, peace and security content of the most recent debate. The statements are available online, organized by Theme (e.g. Conflict Prevention, Indicators, Participation, etc) and by Country/Region.

As is customary, the Council reviewed the latest report by the Secretary-General on Women, Peace and Security, presented by Michelle Bachelet (her first appearance before the Council as head of the new entity, UN Women). Ninety speakers addressed the Council--including country (Security Council and non-Security Council members), UN , civil society, and regional organization representatives--on both the successes and shortcomings in implementing UNSCR 1325.
