Slovenia does not have a recent history of conflict. The Constitution and laws of Slovenia prohibit discrimination based on gender, and these laws are generally well enforced. However, the effect of these has yet to be felt in areas of political representation and women's participation in the labour force. Slovenia is ranked 7 out of 144 countries listed on the Global Gender Gap Index (GGI) for 2016 and it ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1992 and ratified the Arms Treaty (ATT) on 2 April 2014. During the 2017 October Open Debate, Slovenia gave a statement affirming support for WPS and expressed its commitment to promote women's meaningful participation. In 2017, $477 mln were spent by Slovenia on its military; subsequently, the budget for the National Action Plan on the Implementation of Resolution 1325 (2000) is not specified by the state. Women's rights activists in Slovenia advocate for gender equality, economic empowerment, women's political leadership and women's empowerment.
