In light of the 20th Anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, the UAE and GIWPS were proud to launch a Joint Report and a UN Action Plan on “Advancing Women’s Participation in Post-Conflict Reconstruction.”

Report authors discussed major conclusions and findings to accelerate women’s meaningful participation as decision-makers, implementers, and beneficiaries of post-conflict reconstruction. Participants reflected on four key areas of reconstruction – governance and political participation, sustainable economic revitalization, the justice sector and rule of law, and security sector reform – and outlined concrete recommendations from a year-long panel series with distinguished speakers and subject experts.

Co-sponsored by The Permanent Mission of the United Arab Emirates to the United Nations and The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security.
