Women, Peace and Security: Lessons in Demesticating UN Resolution 1325 in Africa
This issue looks at conflicts in Africa ranging from family, land to civil conflicts and how they have affected the lives of African women, children and the elderly. Women play an important role in peace building given the fact that during conflicts, women face gross violation of their human rights, particularly gender based violence such as gang rape, sexual slavery and torture. This issue of Leaders examines country experiences around the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 that was adopted in 2000 with an aim of fulfilling the commitments of the Beijing platform for Action on women in decision-making and peace building.
