Executive Summary

Plans that complement and influence foreign policy don’t need to rely on the four pillars of Resolution 1325 to be successful. Rather, this paper suggests a different lens: attaining meaningful participation of women in peace and security processes, affirming women’s contribution to peace and security, and achieving women’s human security. Based on our experience working with partners in varying political climates, these overarching objectives offer a framework for activities to be more easily customized to a country’s specific goals.
