2018 - THE ROLE OF PARLIAMENTS IN NATO MEMBER COUNTRIES IN ADVANCING THE WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY AGENDA

Joint NATO PA / DCAF survey  
 

United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 (2000) encourages member states and international organisations to involve women and integrate a gender perspective in national and multilateral security initiatives such as peace settlements and peace missions. NATO has contributed to this Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda by developing a policy and operational framework extending through the Alliance’s structures and activities. Since 2007, the NATO Parliamentary Assembly has pursued an original and ground-breaking approach to WPS by mapping the distinctive contribution of parliaments to advancing the WPS agenda. This report continues this tradition by providing an up-to-date analysis of 28 NATO member countries’ recent responses to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly on this matter.
