On 8 October, the Agency for Gender Equality (AGE) launched the first monitoring report on the progress of implementation of the Action Plan to implement Resolution 1325. Participants in this event included representatives of various institutions of Kosovo, most of whom have also been part of the technical group for the drafting of the Action plan itself. This report was drafted by Linda Eriksson in close cooperation with AGE.
The launch included presentations of the main findings of this report, the methodology of data collection, as well as the research limitations. It should be kept in mind that the reporting period includes only the year 2014, results achieved in 2015 will be reflected in the second monitoring report, to be launched in 2016.
The Action Plan foresees three main pillars according to which the objectives were drafted
- Increased participation of women in decisio nmaking, peacebuilding and peacekeeping processes
- Integrated gender perspective in security affairs and increased women’s participation in the security forces
- Survivors of sexual violence, torture and other forms of violence associated with conflict have improved access to protection, access to justice, rehabilitation and re-integration.
