[16days_discussion] Cross-Cutting Report on Women, Peace and Security

Dear 16 Days Listserv Members,

The Security Council Report has released its second /Cross-Cutting 
Report on Women, Peace and Security/. The first report examined the 
first ten years that women, peace and security was on the Security 
Council agenda.

Resolution 1325, passed in 2000, recognized that civilians, especially 
women and children, make up the vast majority of people adversely 
affected by armed conflict and called for mainstreaming a gender 
perspective into peacekeeping operations. This report continues 
assessing the influence of resolution 1325, and subsequent related 
resolutions, on the work of the Council. As part of this analysis it 
reviews recent developments in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, 
particularly mass rape in the Walikale region, and considers the 
Council's response as one example of its engagement with women, peace 
and security issues.

The full report is available for download at:
