2015 marks the 15th Anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325. In October 2000, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted UNSCR 1325, which signaled a turning point in understanding and recognising the role of women and girls in issues of peace and security. To further reaffirm the Security Council’s commitment to women’s rights, subsequent resolutions, including UNSCRs 1820 (2008), 1888 (2009), 1889 (2009), 1960 (2010), 2106 (2013), and 2122 (2013) were adopted by the United Nations.
In support of these emblematic resolutions, the Peace Operations Training Institute and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) have partnered together in the development and distribution of a unique e-learning opportunity.
The aim of this three-course suite is to raise awareness of the seven UN Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace, and Security in order to build capacities for their implementation and to promote sustainable practices and policies at the regional and national levels. Each course focuses on the efforts, challenges, and prospects of this agenda in their respective world regions.
