The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security has released the November 2013 version of our Monthly Action Points (MAP) on Women, Peace and Security for the UN Security Council.

For November, in which China has the Security Council presidency, the MAP provides recommendations on the situations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Central African Republic, Central African Region, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan / South Sudan, and Syria.

Our findings remain clear: while there has been development in policy and normative frameworks on women, peace and security, deployment of this knowledge and subsequent necessary action has been inconsistent at best. To redress this situation, it is of fundamental importance that the Council address the full scope of these issues in the full range of its daily work, in all reviews of reports, in all meetings, and in all resolutions and presidential statements.

The executive summary and the full report from last year, “Mapping Women, Peace and Security in UN Security Council: 2011-2012,” can be found on our website,
About the MAP project:

The NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security produces Monthly Action Points, a series of recommendations that show how each United Nations Security Council President can provide leadership on, and how the Security Council as a whole can systematically meetits obligations to women in conflict. These briefs are designed for Security Council Members, civil society actors, Member States, and UN entities. We look forward to your feedback and input. Please distribute widely.
