Women, Peace and Security: SC-Resolution 1325/2000
On 31 October 2000, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) unanimously adopted Resolution 1325, that demands the involvement of women and their concerns in all phases of a peace process.
On 8 August 2007 the Austrian Government passed the Austrian Action Plan to implement Resolution 1325, which forsees actions to be taken at the national, regional and the international levels. Detailled explanations on the issue as well as the text of the Security Council Resolution are contained in the Action Plan.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the adoption of Resolution 1325 in 2010 Austria decided to conduct a comprehensive review of its Action Plan. As a result of this process the Austrian Government adopted a revised Austrian Action Plan on 24 January 2012.
