National Action Plan: Europe

The first the Regional Strategy on UNSCR1325 has been developed by the European Union in 2008, with the most recent update done in 2016

In 2018, the EU adopted a new strategic approach that emphasises the importance of women’s leadership and agency in all areas of policy and programming related to peace and security. It aims to ensure that women and girls from diverse and variable backgrounds are entitled to participate equitably and substantially in preventing and resolving conflicts, and in preventing conflict-related violence, including all forms of sexual and gender-based violence. Furthermore, the EU Strategic Approach engages men and boys as positive agents for change, addressing the need to address and transform gender stereotypes and societal exclusion mechanisms.
