What We Support

Women, Peace and Security

The WPSN-C supports and monitors the implementation of the United Nations Security Council Resolutions on women, peace and security. This includes UNSCR 1325 and 1889 on the participation of women in peace processes; UNSCR 1820, 1888 and 1960 on sexual violence in conflict; and UNSCR 2122 on women’s leadership in conflict resolution and peacebuilding.

As the Government of Canada has agreed to implement these resolutions and created a National Action Plan for the Implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (NAP), the WPSN-C engages with civil society and the Government of Canada to ensure that the resolutions and NAP are fulfilled.

The WPSN-C also supports The International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict. The International Campaign brings together Nobel Peace Laureates, civil society organizations and individuals around the world in a powerful, coordinated effort for change. It demands political leadership to prevent rape in conflict, to protect civilians and rape survivors, and to prosecute those responsible.

Using the International Campaign as a framework, the Canadian Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict focuses on galvanizing support and taking action in Canada to address issues of sexual violence in conflict. The Subcommittee guiding these efforts developed out the WPSN-C; therefore, the WPSN-C helps to guide the Canadian Campaign along with other civil society actors.
