29 October 2020, New York - Statement on behalf of the European Union and its Member States at the Security Council Open Debate on Women and Peace and Security: Twentieth Anniversary of Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) - Focusing on Better Implementation

On the 20th anniversary of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, we celebrate a turning point in the way the international community has approached peace and security and, more specifically, the impact of conflict on women and girls. Their unique experiences are crucial in peace-building and peacekeeping processes. There is no real peace and security without them.

Syrian women have shown incredible courage and resilience being at the forefront of humanitarian relief and peacebuilding throughout the decade long conflict in their home country. In the light of the 20th anniversary of the UN landmark resolution on Women, Peace and Security, the EU Delegations to the UN in Geneva and New York, together with the Syrian NGO LACU, organized a virtual event to discuss with Syrian female peacemakers their achievements and remaining challenges in the Syrian peace process. 5 prominent Syrian women participated including 3 grassroots activists who are members of the EU-supported Gaziantep Women platform, the initiative that links grassroots activists with the political process and prepare them through capacity building and international exposure.
