The PeaceWomen Team
As awareness of Security Council Resolution 1325 increases, we have observed a tendency to refer to the resolution and its implementation in general terms and as an easy panacea for the issues around women and armed conflict. This is not always accompanied by a consideration of exactly what is meant by implementation in concrete terms.
The increasing number of South Sudan's armed forces is costing more than 50 percent of government's expenditure by some estimates – despite a two-year-old US$55 million demobilization and disarmament programme (DDR) sponsored by international donors.
Only about 12,000 people in South Sudan have completed the DDR process that targeted 90,000 ex-combatants.
