New Security Council resolution on women, peace and security

On the fifteenth anniversary of UNSCR 1325, the Security Council passed a further resolution relating to women, peace and security.

Paragraph 1 of UNSCR 2242 (2015) focuses on women's meaningful participation in peace processes and decision making. The resolution follows the publication of a global study by UN Women on the implementation of UNSCR 1325, which highlights the important gains to be made by the greater empowerment of women in peacebuilding efforts.
