The drafting of the Lithuanian Action Plan implementing the UNSC Resolution 1235 stems from the obligations of Lithuania as an active member of the UN and as a country seeking a status of non-permanent member of the UNSC for the period 2014-2015, and from the fact that by now several tens of countries have drafted national implementation plans and their number is constantly increasing. The EU and NATO have also drafted their Action Plans for the implementation of the UNSC Resolution 1325 in their operations and missions, and they assess the progress achieved every year. The 10th Anniversary of the adoption of the UNSC Resolution 1325 gives a chance to newly evaluate the position of women in conflict regions and their contribution to conflict prevention, peacekeeping processes and rebuilding the region after conflict. The content of the Resolution is significant for Lithuania in terms of strengthening the role of women both in the Lithuanian society and in the interational framework, as well as in the context of the country's membership in NATO and the EU, both of which pay considerable attention to the implementation of the UNSC Resolution 1325, and finally in terms of implementing the objectives of foreign policy, security policy and development cooperation policy and taking part in international missions building and maintaining peace.
