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.
