The Project “Gender and peace in Somalia – Implementation of Resolution 1325” is promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and implemented by UN-INSTRAW and its Italo-Somali project partner Associazione Diaspora e Pace (ADEP). The Project aims to promote the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) by supporting the role of women in the Somali peace process and emphasising their role and their engagement for the survival of their communities during the conflict in Somalia. The Project is based on the participation of women of the Somali Diaspora in Italy, of women's rights associations and of Somali civil society organisations, leading the way to a peace and state-building process that already start in exile by encouraging women's full participation during the political elections in Somalia planned for 2009.
