Gender, peace and security
The adoption of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in 2000 marked a turning point in integrating the gender perspective into the international peace and security agenda. The resolution and agenda developed since then recognise the specific impacts of conflicts from a gender perspective and emphasise the necessary and decisive role of women in the conflict prevention, resolution and transformation and in all aspects related to peacebuilding.
What is the reality in the case of Palestine? To what extent does this agenda provide an appropriate framework for analysing the Palestinian experience from a gender perspective? This section offers own reports and suggestions for external documents and publications to delve deeper into this area.
