The UK launched its third National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security in 2014 for the period 2014 - 2017. The NAP was based on a draft revising the second NAP released after the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict held in London in June of 2014.
The UK has no recent history of armed conflict within its territory, but has gone to war with the United States in the Middle East and plays an important role in NATO, the European Union, the United Nations, and international peacekeeping and development work. The NAP mentions small gains in women's participation in its international operations (17% to 20% women-led overseas missions), and keeps an international focus.
From a recent academic analysis: The 2012 revision of the 2010 UK plan is much more thorough and specific than the 2006 UK plan. In fact, it is the most specific NAP based on our content analysis. The plan is the only one to actually include country plans for actions in specific countries (Afghanistan, DRC, and Nepal). Yet, like its predecessors, it fails to cite specific funding needs and sources, although it does suggest that the three leading departments will contribute to funding the proposed activities (Miller, Pournik, & Swaine, 2014).
The third NAP does however include a section on the establishment of clear guidance on spending for the work described in the NAP on the implementation of the WPS agenda.
