An observation from the ‘Small Wars Journal’, a US blog run by the non-profit Small Wars Foundation. Author Brenda Oppermann opines on the recent integration of UNSCR 1325 in Exercise Talisman Sabre as ‘pivotal’ in bringing constructive change.
‘So why after 12 years was WPS finally included in Talisman Sabre? The short answer is that Australia’s Defence Implementation Plan for the country’s NAP on Women, Peace, and Security expressly requires it. Recognizing the importance of war games, someone in Australia had the common sense to require using military exercises as a means to constructively implement UNSCR 1325.’
