KWN shares the experience with UNSCR 1325 in The Hague

On 11 October, the annual meeting of the signatories of the National Action Plan 1325 (NAP 1325), “Implementing the women peace and security agenda: a joint local and international effort” was organized in The Hague, Netherlands, hosted by the Wo = Men Platform for Gender Equality, where the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN) was one of the participants.
The NAP signatories come together twice a year in the Netherlands to reflect, share experiences and inspire their engagements for the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) on Women, Peace and Security. This time, a special meeting was hosted, inviting civil society partners from Yemen, Syria, Kosovo, etc., who participated as speakers at this meeting.
Igballe Rogova, KWN executive director, shared experience with the greatest achievements in the comprehensive peace processes in Kosovo. “Women and men were equal during the war. When the UN mission landed, they removed the women. Thanks to the UNSCR 1325 we were able to bring women’s perspectives into the negotiations,” said Ms. Rogova.
