Implementation of the UN Security Council Resolutions on the Women, Peace, and Security Agenda in Africa

In October 2000, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 1325- a turning point in understanding and recognizing the role of women and girls in addressing the issues of peace and security. Security Council Resolution (SCR) 1325 is the most comprehensive work to date on linking the issues of gender equality with peace and security and has been further substantiated through six additional Security Council resolutions, including SCRs 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2009), 1960 (2010), 2106 (2013), and 2122 (2013). The purpose of this course is to raise awareness about the importance of these UN SCRs; to build capacities for their implementation; and to promote their sustainable implementation at the regional and national levels. 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 Africa, and who require a practical tool to support and facilitate the implementation of the women, peace, and security agenda. 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 African region. Finally, Lesson 6 examines the role of both regional and subregional organizations in supporting national implementation of the resolution. This course was developed by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) in collaboration with the Peace Operations Training Institute. Six lessons.

En octobre 2000, le Conseil de sécurité des Nations Unies a adopté à l'unanimité la résolution 1325, qui a marqué un tournant dans la compréhension et la reconnaissance du rôle des femmes et des filles dans le traitement des questions de paix et de sécurité. La résolution 1325 du Conseil de sécurité est l'œuvre la plus complète à ce jour sur le lien entre les questions d'égalité des genres, de paix et de sécurité, et a été étayée par six résolutions supplémentaires du Conseil de sécurité ; à savoir les résolutions 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2009), 1960 (2010), 2106 (2013) et 2122 (2013). Le but de cette formation est de sensibiliser sur l'importance de ces résolutions du Conseil de sécurité de l’ONU ; de renforcer les capacités pour leur mise en œuvre ; et de promouvoir leur implémentation durable aux niveaux régional et national. Bien que ce support de formation soit informatif pour toute personne intéressée par le sujet, il a été spécialement conçu pour les personnes qui travaillent dans le domaine de la paix et la sécurité aux niveaux nationaux ou régionaux en Afrique, et qui ont besoin d'un outil pratique pour soutenir et faciliter la mise en œuvre des priorités relatives à la problématique femmes, paix et sécurité. Les trois premières leçons traitent de manière plus générale du rôle de l'ONU dans la promotion de la paix et la sécurité, notamment en intégrant une perspective de genre, et du rôle de la résolution 1325 (2000) et des résolutions ultérieures. Dans ce contexte, les leçons n°4 et n°5 mettent en évidence les défis et les priorités spécifiques au continent africain. Enfin, la leçon n°6 examine le rôle des organisations régionales et sous-régionales dans la mise en œuvre nationale de la résolution. Ce support de formation a été élaboré par l'Entité des Nations Unies pour l'égalité des sexes et l'autonomisation des femmes (ONU-Femmes), en collaboration avec l'Institut de formation aux opérations de paix. Six leçons.
