Cross-Cutting Report on Women, Peace and Security

Security Council Report (SCR) has now published the Cross-Cutting Report on Women, Peace and Security, the first in an ongoing series of cross-cutting reports which will track progress by the Security Council and the wider UN machinery in implementing the principles agreed in resolution 1325 and subsequent decisions.

This report examines the events in 2000 that led the Council to adopt its first resolution on women, peace and security; the framework created by the Council to address it; the extent to which the Council has addressed the issues in the country situations on its agenda; the international legal framework; the Council’s changing dynamics over the past ten years regarding this issue; and some thoughts on future issues and options. Other SCR cross cutting reports include Children and Armed Conflict and Protection of Civilians.
