Date published

The United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS) was unanimously adopted by the United Nations Security Council on the 31st of October 2000. For the first time, this resolution recognised the ways in which conflict disproportionately and distinctly affects women, and how their contributions to peace efforts are consistently undervalued. This report was comissioned by UN Women to take stock of progress, challenges, and opportunities for implementing this WPS Agenda across the Arab States region. It is structured into three sections:

  1. Rapid overview of key status updates, based on available evidence on selection of WPS themes
  2. Opportunities and challenges for implementation
  3. Recommendations for collaborative and committed engagement (with member states, donors, implementing agencies, and civil society).
