Examining the Role of the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 in Fostering Inclusive and Sustainable Peace in South Sudan

Abstract:

The position of women has been strengthened in conflict resolution efforts globally, since the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted resolution 1325 in 2000. Since then, as peace building practice continues to evolve globally, there is a notable shift from being regarded as a male dominated sphere to a rather more inclusive and collaborative process. Various studies including a 2015 Global study on the Implementation of the resolution 1325 have acknowledged and recognized how conflict affects girls and women differently from men and boys, and that the former must be part and parcel of any conflict resolution for long-term and sustainable Peace building. This study examines the role of the United Nations Security Council resolution 1325 in fostering inclusive and Sustainable Peace in South Sudan. The study gives an in-depth analysis of the role of women in conflict, as perpetrators, victims and peace builders. The study also assesses how conflict disproportionately affects women and girls and its impact on them. The research furthermore analyzes the significance of the UNSCR 1325 in ensuring women‘s involvement in peace and security issues by looking at the four pillars of the resolution, that is Participation, Protection, Prevention and Relief and Recovery. The study then makes both policy and practice recommendations on strategies needed in strengthening and promoting women‘s participation in peace building. This is a qualitative research study which uses both primary and secondary data.
