This publication titled "Role of Women in Peace Building and Conflict Resolution in Rwanda" was developed as an Evaluation of the Implementation of the 2009-2012 National Action Plan for the Implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325.
The UNSCR 1325 was adopted in 2000 after the United Nations realized that civilians were increasingly targeted, and women were being excluded in peace processes. The resolution highlights the importance of promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women in order to achieve the goals of peace and development, and stresses the central role that member States can play in that respect.
The UNSCR 1325 is based on the assumption that deadly conflicts can be more effectively avoided, and peace can be best forged and sustained, when women become equal partners in all aspects of peace-building and conflict prevention, when their lives are protected, their experiences considered, and their voices heard.
The present report provides the achievements that Rwanda made for the implementation of the 2009-2012 Rwanda National Action Plan (NAP) for the UNSCR 1325. The report demonstrates in detail how Rwanda has involved, and is still involving women in conflict management, conflict resolution, and promotion of sustainable peace.
