Global Study on Women, Peace and Security

Fifteen years ago, in 2000, the Security Council adopted the ground-breaking resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security—the first resolution to link women’s experiences of conflict to international peace and security. In October 2015 in New York, the Security Council convened a High-level Review to assess 15 years of progress at the global, regional and national levels.


To inform this discussion, the Secretary-General commissioned a Global Study—led by independent lead author Radhika Coomaraswamy—on the implementation of resolution 1325 and recommendations on the way forward for women, peace and security.
