Narrating the Women, Peace and Security Agenda

The year 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of the adoption of United Nations Security Council resolution 1325, the first resolution to be adopted by the Council under the title of ‘Women and Peace and Security’ (WPS). With the subsequent adoption of eight further resolutions, WPS now represents a significant and well-established thematic agenda for the Council, and its relevance as an area of political practice extends well beyond the Council Chamber at United Nations Headquarters (UNHQ) in New York.
