The WILPF Integrated Approach in Action

A Universal Periodic Review (UPR) provides one opportunity to evaluate and hold states accountable for their obligations to respect, protect, and fulfill the human rights of all people, and our WILPF team has worked to ensure that this addresses a holistic and inclusive understanding of security for all. In Colombia, PeaceWomen worked with WILPF-International and WILPF-Colombia to advocate for increased women's participation in peace talks, implementation of Colombian court orders to end impunity for crimes of sexual violence against women, create a UN Security Council Resolution 1325 National Action Plan (NAP) and more. Our recommendations received support from governments of both Ireland and Portugal. In Germany, PeaceWomen worked with WILPF's German Section and WILPF International to highlight gaps in implementation. WILPF regrets that during this pre-session, the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security was not mentioned. Germany has just launched its National Action Plan on the implementation of this resolution, but many loopholes remain in this programme of action.
