The women, peace and security (WPS) agenda consists of eight United Nations Security Council resolutions that address the importance of the equal participation, protection and full involvement of women in all efforts for maintaining and promoting peace and security.1 The WPS foundational resolution—UN Resolution 1325—is divided into four priority areas: participation, prevention, protection and peacebuilding, and the follow-up resolutions strengthen these specific priority areas. This section explains the WPS agenda, the developments that led up to the ratification of the foundational resolution, as well as the WPS agenda’s main stakeholders. It concludes with a focus on the resolutions and their different priority areas.
