Implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions on the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda in Latin America and the Caribbean

In October 2000, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security- a turning point in understanding and recognizing the role of women and girls in addressing the issues of peace and security. Resolution 1325 makes the promotion of gender equality and women’s empowerment an international peace and security concern relevant to negotiating peace agreements, planning refugee and Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camps and peacekeeping operations, and reconstructing war-ravaged societies. In the years since, SCR 1325 has been strengthened by the adoption of six additional Security Council resolutions on women, peace, and security (WPS). This body of all seven resolutions represents a coherent international legislative framework that reinforces existing global commitments, treaties, and conventions on women’s rights including the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW (1979)) and the 1995 Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action.

While all major stakeholders need to take responsibility for the full implementation of SCR 1325 and the subsequent WPS resolutions, Member States in particular must integrate these resolutions into regional and national policies and programmes to ensure that implementation is systematic, sustainable, and results-driven. To date, however, the actual steps taken by Member States to implement this agenda both at the regional and national levels are often still ad hoc, hesitant, sporadic, underfunded, and do not bring meaningful change in the lives of women and girls affected by conflict.

The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about the importance of UN SCRs on women, peace, and security; to build capacities about the possible ways of their implementation; and to promote their sustainable implementation at the regional and national level. While informative for any student interested in the topic, the course was especially designed for people who work in the area of peace and security at the national or regional levels in Latin America and the Caribbean, and who require a practical tool to support and facilitate the implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda. The course is based on background information, analysis, and a wide range of studies. The first three lessons focus more broadly on the UN’s role in promoting a peace and security agenda, including from a gender perspective and the role of SCR 1325 (2000) and subsequent resolutions. Within this context, Lessons Four and Five highlight the challenges and priorities specific to the Latin American and Caribbean region. Five lessons, 217 pages.

En octubre de 2000, el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU aprobó por unanimidad la resolución 1325 sobre mujeres , paz y seguridad; un punto de inflexión en la comprensión y el reconocimiento del papel de las mujeres y las niñas en el tratamiento de las cuestiones de la paz y la seguridad . Resolución 1325 hace que la promoción de la igualdad de género y el empoderamiento de las mujeres sea una preocupación internacional de paz y seguridad relevante para la negociación de los acuerdos de la paz , la planificación de los refugiados y personas desplazadas internamente ( PDI) y las operaciones de mantenimiento de la paz y la reconstrucción de las sociedades asoladas por la guerra . En los años anteriores , la Resolución 1325 se ha reforzado con la adopción de seis resoluciones del Consejo de Seguridad adicionales sobre las mujeres , la paz y la seguridad (MPS, o WPS en inglés) . Este cuerpo de las siete resoluciones representa un marco legislativo internacional coherente que refuerce los compromisos existentes a nivel mundial , tratados y convenciones sobre derechos de la mujer como la Convención sobre la Eliminación de todas las formas de discriminación contra la mujer (CEDAW ( 1979 ) ) y la Declaración de Beijing de 1995 y Plataforma de Acción. Cinco lecciones, 226 páginas. Mientras que todas las principales partes interesadas deben asumir la responsabilidad de la aplicación plena de la resolución 1325 y las resoluciones posteriores de la MPS , los Estados miembros en particular deben de integrar estas resoluciones en las políticas y los programas regionales y nacionales para garantizar que la aplicación sea sistemática , sostenible y orientada a los resultados . Sin embargo, los pasos reales adoptados por los Estados miembros que apliquen este programa hasta ahora , tanto a nivel regional y nacional a menudo son aún ad hoc , vacilante, esporádica , y con financiación insuficiente , y no han llevado un cambio significativo en las vidas de las mujeres y niñas afectadas por conflicto. El propósito de este curso es crear conciencia sobre la importancia de la ONU RCSs sobre las mujeres, la paz y la seguridad; para crear capacidades sobre las formas posibles de su aplicación; y promover su aplicación sostenible a nivel regional y nacional. Informativo para cualquier estudiante interesado en el tema , el curso fue diseñado especialmente para las personas que trabajan en el ámbito de la paz y la seguridad a nivel nacional o regional en América Latina y el Caribe y que requieren de una herramienta práctica para apoyar y facilitar la implementación de la agenda de las mujeres , la paz y la seguridad . El curso se basa en los antecedentes , el análisis, y una amplia gama de estudios. Las tres primeras lecciones se centran más sobre el papel general de la ONU en la promoción de paz y seguridad, incluso desde una perspectiva de género y el papel de la RCS 1325 (2000) y las resoluciones posteriores . Dentro de este contexto , lecciones cuatro y cinco destacan los desafíos y las prioridades específicas de la región de América Latina y el Caribe.

"This course is an eye opener, knowledgeable of UNSCR 1325(2000) and sister resolutions made me to understand the important of women in peace and conflict resolution, I wish this course can be introduce to higher institutions as a core/major course. Henceforth I promise to be an Ambassador for peace and an Advocate for gender equality and empowerment for women and girls. Without peace for WOMEN there can be no peace. Please let there be PEACE."

"A word from a writer is like a single grain that falls on fertile soil to give in return many grains.... the knowledge has been passed and the message would be carried along implying therefore that communities under the belief of gender inequality and discrimination will have something new to learn from me "The role of women and their influence in the society", with much emphasis on decision making tables about the well-being of the entire community "
