GAPS report on involving men in the implementation of Resolution 1325
This report is based on a discussion held in conjunction with GAPS and the High Commission for Canada on involving men in the implementation of Security Council Resolution 1325. It focuses on how and why SCR 1325 is relevant to men, as well as broader efforts to build sustainable peace. It explores strategies to increase their engagement with work around SCR 1325 at the UK and international levels.
Margaret Owen, founder member of GAPS and Director of Widows for Peace through Democracy chaired the panel, which featured three speakers: Matthew Neuhaus, Senior Political Advisor at the Commonwealth Secretariat; Dan Smith, Secretary General of International Alert; and Jeremy Stickings, Senior Social Advisor at UK Department for International Development.
