Abstract

Research reveals that women are often most affected by war and conflict and hence it is imperative that women play a pivotal role in the peacebuilding process. Ten years ago the United Nations (UN) passed Security Resolution (SCR) 1325 which seeks to protect women in conflict and post-conflict environments and engage women in all levels of the peacebuilding process. Through research and limited interviews, this paper seeks to reflect on the need and importance of this resolution; examine how it is being implemented in three countries in South Asia; and provide recommendations on how to better implement it over the next decade.
