In October 2010, the tenth anniversary of the passing of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security will be observed through a series of events in New York, including high-level meetings at the Security Council, along with workshops and seminars organized by a variety of women’s groups and NGOs. Since the adoption of Resolution 1325 in 2000, a steadily growing number of UN member-states have recognized the important role of women in peace and security matters. The changing attitude among UN member-states is reflected in the adoption of three follow-up resolutions in recent years under the thematic umbrella of ‘Women, Peace and Security’. This policy brief seeks to provide a brief introduction to the contents of those resolutions and give some examples of implementation efforts.
