New insights on women, peace and security for the next decade
On 31 October 2000, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 1325 on women, peace and security (UNSCR 1325). Several other resolutions followed, which together constitute the normative framework for the women, peace and security (WPS) agenda.
Ahead of the twentieth anniversary on 24 January 2020, the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA), the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), and UN Women jointly hosted a one-day “Research–policy dialogue” in New York with the objective of bringing together researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to engage in a dialogue on research findings for forwarding UNSCR 1325 beyond 2020.
This joint brief series is a result of the meeting and a continuation of the cooperation, which recognizes that, despite advancements, we have to build a stronger bridge between empirical scholarly work, new policy directions, and actual practice on the ground. This series seeks to address that gap and contribute to the realization of the WPS agenda through the promotion of evidence-based policy and practice.
