UNSCR 1325’s Approach to Women’s Representation : A case study from the occupied Palestinian territories
United Nations Security Council passed a resolution, 1325, that addressed the needs of women in conflict situations. Among the pillars addressed in this resolution was the representation of women in government and in peace processes. While progress has occurred, recent incidences involving Israel and Palestine have demonstrated the limitations of women in high-level government decision-making. This report discusses the importance of women’s representation in the political processes of peace and conflict negotiation, addresses the framework in which the SCR addresses this issue then suggests more pragmatic and responsible methods for monitoring and evaluation of these goals. This analysis is particularly useful in addressing inequalities and women’s rights for future initiatives that attempt to address the reduction of inequalities through agency and representation.
