Workshop about Women, Peace and Security
Why do some states voluntarily comply with, and even actively forward, UN Security Council resolution1325 while others do not?
This is a central question discussed at the yearly workshop on October 22-23 for the Folke Bernadotte Academy’s UNSCR 1325 Research Working Group. This year, the workshop will be held in cooperation with Emory University in Atlanta, which has substantial research on the question of compliance and what affects the participation of women in peace operations.
The researchers of the working group all focus on areas of relevance for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and its follow-up resolutions and have a systematic methodological approach. At the workshop, the themes of sexual violence in armed conflict, the role of equality in relation to conflict resolution and peace operations in addition to how to collect systematic data during field research are discussed. SIPRI Washington and the Global Action to Prevent War will present their work with research and practical work on the resolutions.
