Involvement of Parliaments in Advancing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in NATO Member Countries

14 October, 2013



In 2013, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly commissioned DCAF to provide an analysis of responses to a survey of Member Countries regarding national implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace and security. The subsequent study, €œInvolvement of Parliaments in Advancing the Women, Peace and Security€™ Agenda in NATO Member Countries,€ analyses the role of national parliaments in establishing and monitoring legal and policy initiatives put in place by NATO Member Countries to implement Resolution 1325. Its findings point to an increased level of parliamentary involvement in advancing this agenda in countries that have adopted national action plans for implementing United Nations Security Council resolutions on women, peace and security.

DCAF presented the findings of this study at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly 2013 Annual Session in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
