Executive Summary

This second collection of case studies on national implementation of UNSCR 1325 builds on the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office’s 2010 publication entitled “21 Case Studies of Implementation of UNSCR 1325 in Europe”. It is part of EPLO’s ongoing efforts to channel civil society analysis and provide evidence-based contributions to the debate on these issues. As with the first publication, the overall aim of the current collection is to provide a snapshot of civil society involvement in lobbying for, drafting, implementing, monitoring and reviewing national action plans (NAPs) for the implementation of UNSCR 1325 and subsequent resolutions in Europe. It is also aimed at contributing to national- and European level advocacy on this issue by providing an overview of the tools, mechanisms and strategies in place and, where possible, the achievements and challenges observed in recent years.
