Advocacy and work for NATIONAL ACTION PLANS

Work for NATIONAL ACTION PLANs FOR WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY

Nationally

Operation 1325 has actively participated in the development of Sweden’s NAP, we have since early on been part of a working group as representatives of civil society, for the development and implementation of women, peace, and security. Our role extends beyond simply making recommendations; we also play an essential role in reviewing Sweden’s NAP and Sweden’s implementation of UNSC Resolution 1325.

Internationally

Early in its history, Operation 1325 has supported and raised awareness of UNSC Resolution 1325 internationally among a wide range of actors, including civil society, academics, and politicians. We have supported countries through capacity-building efforts to enable the implementation of the agenda for women, peace and security. We have also trained civil society and journalists in various of tools to carry out reviews and analyses of their country’s implementation of the women, peace and security agenda, and their respective national action plans.

We have been in Albania, Armenia, Iraqi Kurdistan, Iraq, Sudan, Turkey, and have had regional work in MENA with eight countries, to strengthen their work on the implementation and review of the WPS agenda.

These analyses are critical reviews of National Action Plans (NAPs) for the implementation of UNSCR 1325.

ANALYSIS OF SWEDENS NATIONAL ACTION PLAN FOR WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY

In 2023, Sweden adopted its latest national action plan for women, peace and security. This analysis presents what we consider as the most important differences between the current and previous previous action plans, both in terms of overall objectives and in a number of key areas of implementation. It has been prepared by the Womens international league for Peace and Freedom  (IKFF), the Kvinna till Kvinna foundation and Operation 1325, all of which are members of the working group for the national action plan.

ANALYSIS OF UKRAINES NATIONAL ACTION PLAN FOR WOMEN, PEACE AND SECURITY

In response to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, Ukraine’s National Action Plan has been updated to include the impact of the war on gender equality in the country. Despite the update of the action plan, it still leaves more to be desired. Addressing the root causes and potential consequences of the war requires, among other things, a more comprehensive approach with a more nuanced gender perspective on the impact of norms. This analysis presents three areas of the action plan that could have been improved.

WOMEN COUNT

THE GLOBAL NETWORK OF WOMEN PEACE BUILDER (GNWP) STARTED AND COORDINATED WOMEN COUNT REPORTS TO SCRUTINISE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RESOLUTION. Operation 1325 HAS CONTINUED THIS WORK THOURGH THE CREATION OF WOMEN COUNT REPORTS THAT MONITORS COMMITMENT TO THE RESOLUTION.

WOMEN COUNT ALBANIA 2017

This is the first time that Women Count Albania is being presented by Operation 1325. The same format and indicators are used here as in other Women Count reports, making it possible to monitor and gather data on the situation of women’s rights and the government’s implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.

The report is intended to be used as a baseline for further monitoring and research, for lobbying, and to develop the implementation of UNSC Resolution 1325 in Albania.

WOMEN COUNT TURKEY 2018

This report presents data on the situation of women in Turkey from a women, peace and security perspective, and highlights the intersectionality of women’s problems. The report briefly introduces the state of affairs in Turkey, with particular focus on the peace and security agenda, and thereafter describes the legal and policy framework. The report uses indicators from the monitoring model of the Women Count project developed by the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders.

WOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2011

In 2006, Sweden became one of the first countries in the world to adopt an action plan for the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and subsequent Resolutions on women, peace and security. In 2011, Operation 1325 began producing Women Count reports to analyse and evaluate Sweden’s commitment to implement the action plan and comply with the resolution. The report also includes recommendations for an improved action plan.

WOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2013

This report is the Swedish contribution to the global monitoring report Women Count, which in 2013 comprises 15 countries. The aim of the global monitoring report is to advocate for more effective measures to put women’s participation on the global agenda of conflict management and security policy. This report was presented at the international level, alongside other country reports, in New York on the anniversary of UNSC Resolution 1325. This report is also the only civil society effort to monitor the responsible Swedish agencies’ implementation of UNSC Resolution 1325.

The aim of this report is to hold the responsible agencies accountable to their commitments and to collect experiences and lessons learned in order to speed up implementation efforts in Swedish international development cooperation, diplomatic relations, conflict management and in peace keeping efforts. 

WOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2015

Operation 1325 has produced the monitoring report Women Count since 2011. It is important to note that the national action plan for 2015 has been updated to a new, enhanced version. However, since the present report covers the year 2015, it is based on the previous national action plan. In this year’s report we use the goals formulated in the Swedish National Action Plan; responsible governmental agencies also report in line with these goals. 

The goals are primarily concerned with Swedish foreign, security and development policies, but in this report we chose to use a wider approach. Since media is a powerful player in Swedish society, women’s representation in media is fundamentally important and as such we chose to include this aspect. We also decided to highlight trade and education as two important areas when it comes to prevention.

WOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2012

The Global Network of Women Peace Builders initiated a global monitoring project in 2010. Operation 1325 participated in the project along with civil society organizations in 15 other countries, to monitor how the UNSC resolution 1325 is implemented nationally, based on 11 indicators. The findings of the global monitoring project were presented in New York on the 6th of November 2012 in the report “Women Count; Security Council Resolution 1325: Civil Society Monitoring Report 2012.”
This report is the contribution by Operation 1325 to the global monitoring project. The indicators chosen for this report are based on the 11 indicators used in the global monitoring project. However, this study is confined to the indicators found relevant for the Swedish context.

wOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2014

This report is the Swedish Women Count – civil society monitoring report for 2014.  The set of indicators chosen for the report mainly measure the quality of Swedish efforts to implement UNSCR 1325
in its external activities; through its military, diplomatic and development cooperation efforts. Moreover, the report analyses the
coordination around Swedish efforts, including, the National Action Plan, reporting mechanisms, and government instructions to the relevant agencies. 

WOMEN COUNT SWEDEN 2020

This report covers the Swedish government authority’s activities for 2018, which falls under Sweden’s third National Action Plan for Women, Peace and Security, 2016–2020. We have also identified additional areas not covered directly in Sweden’s National Action Plan. As the previous year er bring up the importance of education. We also highltight the perception of increasing insecurity in Sweden, swedish arms export in relation to gender and the effects of climate change on women’s rights and gender equality. Recommendations for improvements are presented under each area.
