This report has sought to give as full a picture as possible of the Government’s efforts in 2011 to follow up Security Council resolution 1325 (SCR 1325) and the other resolutions on women, peace and security, including areas where there are challenges. It will therefore be an important tool for our future efforts. It is built up around the five priority areas presented in Women, Peace and Security: Norway’s Strategic Plan 2011-13:
- Peace processes and negotiations
- International operations
- Post-conflict situations and peacebuilding
- Sexual violence in conflict
- Reporting and accountability.
Each chapter includes boxes on the various countries highlighted in strategic plan. These boxes give a general picture of the political context and main features of Norway’s SCR 1325 efforts in these countries.
The report shows that Norway is a champion of the resolutions on women, peace and security vis-à-vis the UN, NATO and individual countries. It also shows that Norway provides substantial support to NGOs and other actors working to implement these resolutions on the ground, particular those seeking to increase women’s political participation and influence, and those fighting sexual violence and providing assistance to victims.
