2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the unanimous adoption by the United Nations Security Council of Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) on Women, Peace and Security. This is an excellent opportunity to reflect on the progress achieved in advancing the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda in the Euro-Atlantic area and beyond, and to identify the challenges that lie ahead. Over the years, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA) has been consistently upholding and promoting the principle that women and men are equal partners in the pursuit of peace and security.
The NATO PA and its members demonstrated their continuous commitment to this central tenet of security. Importantly, the Committee on the Civil Dimension of Security (CDS) adopted a report on Advancing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda by Ulla Schmidt (Germany) as well as a resolution on this crucial topic during the 2020 Annual Session.
Parliamentarians have an essential role to play in advocating for and advancing the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
