Ormhaug, Christin Marsh (2014) National Action Plans on Women, Peace and Security in the OSCE Area, PRIO Policy Brief, 5. Oslo, Norway: PRIO.
The first United Nations Security Council resolution on Women Peace and Security (WPS) was adopted in 2000 and underscored the importance of including women in all decisions related to peace and conflict. The implementation of this and the following WPS resolutions has however been patchy and inconsistent. The OSCE therefore initiated an analysis of the National Action Plans to enhance national WPS implementation by 27 of their participating states. A summary of the recommendations and tools for action for National Action Plan improvement are provided in this policy brief.
The Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) conducts research on the conditions for peaceful relations between states, groups and people.
