In resolution 2122 (2013), the Security Council invited the Secretary-General to commission a global study on the implementation of resolution 1325 (2000), highlighting good practice, gaps, challenges, emerging trends, and priorities for action. Preventing Conflict, Transforming Justice, Securing The Peace: A Global Study on the Implementation of United Nations Security Council resolution 1325 is the result of a year-long process managed and coordinated by UN Women.
The study was authored by an independent expert, Radhika Coomaraswamy (former Special Rapporteur on Violence Against Women and Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Children and Armed Conflict) with the support of a seventeen-member high-level advisory group.
Consultations were held from January to June 2015 in all regions of the world.
More than 60 Member States, regional organizations and UN entities responded to requests for submissions, and 47 civil society organizations, academics and research institutions provided inputs via a public website. A survey of civil society organizations managed by the Global Network of Women Peacebuilders, Cordaid, and the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security generated responses from 317 organizations in 71 countries.
