The Handbook examines the degree to which the Security Council has internalised the thematic agenda, Women, peace and security, in its geographic work over this 10-year period, specifically in its country-specific resolutions. The analysis assesses the consistency with which Council resolutions reflect the language and intent of SCR 1325. Good practice extracts from resolutions are presented and critical recommendations are made. This Handbook, like the 10th anniversary itself, is a call to action and a sincere effort to enhance the implementation of the Women, peace and security agenda. The recommendations call for the incorporation of more comprehensive language on women and gender in future country-specific resolutions.
