Holding the UN Security Council Accountable for WPS Agenda Commitments


The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) has published a new guide for civil society and activists to ensure that the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda is included in UN Security Council resolutions.

The guide provides a practical framework for activists who research and work to include WPS in UNSC resolutions. It also highlights the connections between the WPS Agenda and international law and encourages more intentional use of them.

Drafted with an eye to the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) coming up in October 2020, this guide supports peace activists to evaluate how far we’ve come – and what’s still needed.
