Regional Activists Strategize, Present Documentary on UNSCR 1325

In April 2005, women activists from the region gathered in Skopje, Macedonia with support from UNIFEM to share information and strategize about how to implement United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in the region. This came after two prior meetings on the same topic in Prishtina in January 2004 and Sarajevo in October 2004.

During the meeting, RTV21 screened a documentary that was made during the regional workshop in Sarajevo. This was the first documentary film ever produced on UNSCR 1325. In the film, regional women leaders spoke about the importance of the Resolution and how they have used it.

The documentary was aired on RTV21, as well as in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia and New York by UNIFEM and the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) at the United Nations. After airing the film, RTV21 organized a debate in which KWN members and government representatives discussed the film and the implementation of UNSCR 1325 in Kosova.
