OSCE study on national action plans on the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325
This study has been launched in order to address the issues surrounding the implementation of the commitments by the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325). It contains an analysis of the 27 National Action Plans on the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in the OSCE region. The aim of the study is to provide tangible tools for action for the revision or development of such plans. It highlights common challenges and shares good practices from the OSCE region. The examples presented in the document aspire also to offer entry points for closer co-operation with civil society on implementing the Women, Peace and Security agenda, e.g. through cross-learning exercises with practitioners. It further draws attention to both domestic and international elements of National Action Plans and underlines the relevance of creating and maintaining national capacity on UNSCR 1325 at home and abroad.
