Operation 1325

PROJECTS IN SOUTH SUDAN

The security situation in South Sudan is very strained, the country is characterised by widespread poverty and strong climate impacts. Some progress has been made for women’s rights since the country’s independence in 2013, but there is still much work to be done for an equal society. Child marriage is common, as is the fact that women are subjected to physical and sexual violence. Women also have low representation in politics and economic decision-making.

However, the development trend in South Sudan is going in the right direction and the degree of gender equality is growing. For example, more and more women are included in the country’s peace processes.

IN RECENT YEARS

Our latest project in South Sudan “Security Sector Reform” was terminated in 2012. The aim was to increase cooperation between international response personnel and civil society organisations working with Security Council Resolution 1325.

We are constantly on the lookout for new collaborations in the field of women, peace and security in South Sudan.

Here’s a video we’ve produced to give those of you who don’t know about Operation 1325 a little insight into who we are and what we do. We are very happy that our heroine Dr. Louise Olsson, Senior Researcher in Women, Peace and Security at the Institute for Peace Research in Oslo, is joining us with her expertise and solid knowledge!
