THE WPS AGENDA

The Women, Peace and Security Resolutions

To date, the United Nations Security Council has adopted ten resolutions on “Women, Peace and Security.” Together they make up the WPS Agenda.  UNSCR 1325, is the historic first resolution that confirmed the global commitment to women’s full involvement in peace and security. More than a resolution, it serves as a political framework that confirms the importance of gender perspective in negotiating peace, peacekeeping, and response to conflict.
