VII. Gender awareness and Cross Cutting Topics (CCT)
7.5. Women, peace and security
UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 introduced the topic of WPS and focused on promoting “participation of women in conflict prevention, protection and participation; women’s participation in peace-building; protection of women’s and girls’ rights; and prevention of conflict-related sexual- and gender-based violence.” NATO has implemented this in policy with the goal to “ensure that a gender perspective is mainstreamed into policies, activities and efforts to prevent and resolve conflicts.”
