Getting it Right: Putting Women, Peace and Security at the Centre of the Integrated Review

As the UK Government has resumed the Integrated Review on Security, Defence, Development and policy, GAPS and its members make the submission that this is a key moment for the UK Government to reaffirm its commitments to gender equality, the Women, Peace and Security agenda, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially as we are in the 20th anniversary year of UNSCR 1325. To make the most of the opportunity, GAPS and its members have set out 4 key priorities that should be fully considered throughout the process of the review. These are laid out here in this briefing paper.

The briefing addresses that, in order to deliver meaningful progress on existing commitments made on women and girls’ rights, peace and security, the right combination of vision, policies, capabilities and funding is necessary. This briefing also speaks to the need for a robust consultation process. Meaningful engagement that is timely, inclusive, transparent and substantive, should also be at the heart of both the Integrated Review process and the future foreign, security and development policies it shapes.
