On October 14th, Director of the GPS Centre, Torunn L. Tryggestad, sat down with PRIO’s Peace in a Pod host Indigo Trigg-Hauger to commemorate and discuss the 20th anniversary of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. This episode kicks-off a series of episodes to look back on the last 20 years and to discuss the future of 1325; stay tuned for more episodes.
In 2000, the UN Security Council adopted resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. Never heard of it? This resolution paved the way for women to participate in peace processes, for countries to adopt "feminist" foreign policy, and for academia to take more seriously issues like sexual violence in conflict. PRIO Deputy Director Torunn Tryggestad explains how far we've come, and how far we still have to go.
For anyone interested in learning about the past and future of WPS, to hear about a career within this field, and to get Tryggestad’s expert perspective on how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go, listen to the episode here, or wherever you get your podcasts.
