Resolution 1325: Preparations for the 2015 High-level Review and Global Study

In 2000, the Security Council adopted the ground-breaking resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security – the first to link women’s experiences of conflict to the international peace and security agenda. It focused on the disproportionate impact of conflict on women, and called for their engagement in conflict resolution and peacebuilding. In 2015, the Security Council will convene a High-level Review to assess progress at the global, regional and national levels in implementing the resolution.

The Security Council has passed six additional resolutions on women, peace and security since the adoption of resolution 1325. Despite progress in the last 14 years, the Security Council has stressed that women’s perspectives will continue to be underrepresented in conflict prevention, resolution, protection and peacebuilding without a significant shift in how the resolution is implemented. The Secretary-General has encouraged Member States, regional organizations and United Nations entities to review existing implementation plans and targets ahead of the 2015 High-level Review.

In preparation for the 2015 High-level Review, the Secretary-General has commissioned a global study on the implementation of resolution 1325. The study will highlight examples of good practice, implementation gaps and challenges, and priorities for action. The results will be included in the Secretary-General’s annual report to the Security Council in 2015 and will be made available to all Member States. The study will also build on the findings of the two high-level studies on women, peace and security undertaken in 2021 and lessons learned from the tenth anniversary of resolution 1325 in 2010.
