In 2019, the UK Government funded GAPS and its partners to undertake consultations on Women, Peace and Security to mark the 20th anniversary of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 in 2020. 245 organisations and individuals were consulted across 11 countries as part of this project. The consultation participants developed recommendations for how governments, multilateral institutions, international non-governmental organisations and civil society can meet their Women, Peace and Security commitments and, importantly, make progress for women and girls affected by conflict and gender inequality in fragile and conflict affected states.
The consultation findings resulted in 10 recommendations for multilateral institutions, governments, INGOs and civil society to make transformational progress that aims to create a more peaceful world in which women, girls, men and boys’ rights are upheld. These recommendations have been translated into Arabic. Thank you to Ali Barazi and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom for the translation.
