Side By Side – Women, Peace and Security

Women, Peace and Security was unanimously accepted by the United Nations Security Council in 2000. But what does Women, Peace and Security mean? How has the international community responded? What else needs to be done?


Jointly developed by the Australian Government’s Australian Civil-Military Centre and UN Women, “Side by Side – Women, Peace and Security” explores how the international community has and can meet its commitments on women, peace and security. The 30-minute documentary features an introduction by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as well as interviews with United Nations personnel, peacekeepers, mediators, humanitarian actors, policy makers and survivors of conflict.
