Peace and Security for All

Feminist Positions and Perspectives on Peace and Security Policy

March 23, 2010
The strategies of international security policy have significantly changed since the end of the Cold War, as have the challenges posed by international terrorism and the increase of global inequality. In women's policy and feminist networks, interest in foreign and security policy ideas has also grown in recent years. Not least because of the commitment to and adoption of UN Resolution 1325, for the first time in the history of the United Nations a requirement was adopted, binding under international law, respecting the participation of women in decisions about war and peace. Finally: Armed conflicts are related to unjust gender relations.

In this publication the Gunda Werner Institute in the Heinrich Böll Foundation presents a detailed position paper to contribute to the international debate on peace and security policy. The paper is based on a 2006 discussion paper, which has been extensively up-dated and revised.
