UN Security Council Resolution 1325 assures women a role in peace negotiations. Adopted unanimously by the 15 members of the SC on October 31, 2001, it is reviewed annually at the UN to track progress.
Women have rarely participated in peace negotiations, though they suffer a disproportionate share of civilian injuries and suffering in modern day conflicts. Enter Sanam Naraghi Anderlini who has worked tirelessly for over 25 years both on the frontlines as a mediator and at the international level as a policy advocate to ensure that women play their rightful role in peace negotiations. Sanam is the Director of the Centre for Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics as well as Founder and CEO of the International Civil Society Action Network.
