The women, peace and security agenda (WPS) consists of eight United Nations Security Council resolutions that inject a gender perspective into various peace and security fora. This perspective calls for women’s participation in preventing armed conflict and in peacebuilding, as well as for the protection of women and girls in conflict. The foundational resolution of the WPS agenda, UN Security Council Resolution 1325, was adopted unanimously in October 2000. It was the first Security Council resolution to specifically address the impact of armed conflict on women, and women’s contribution to conflict resolution and sustainable peace. This formal agenda has also given rise to a transnational epistemic community of governments, private sector actors, researchers and, most notably, civil society. Many within this community have their origins in the women’s peace movement.
