December 28 2013
Working Paper prepared by DemocraShe, Human Rights Watch, ICAN, Kvinna til Kvinna, Oxfam, and WILPF based on consultations with Syrian civil society partners
Summary: The effective participation of women and attention to women’s rights issues is a critical element in achieving a just and sustainable peace in Syria. This paper offers five critical steps to ensuring this outcome in the ongoing international efforts related to the mediation process. These steps also ensure that the foundations are laid for the implementation of United Nations Security Council resolutions 1325 (2000), 1889 (2008) and 2122 (2013).
