Linkages between United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security and Other International Frameworks and Mechanisms for the Advancement of Women’s Rights

Issued in: 

The Policy Brief presents synergies at the substantive and procedural levels between the United Nations Security Council resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, and three other international frameworks: the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, the Beijing Declaration and Platform of Action and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The brief addresses some of the challenges that hinder the effective response to Security Council resolution 1325 at the national level by urging countries in the Arab region to adopt an integrated approach to protect and promote women's rights. It also calls for developing tools to allow a more comprehensive reading of all frameworks on women’s rights.
