Women, peace, and security agenda

In a changing international security scenario, as we move towards a more comprehensive understanding of peace, not only as the absence of conflict, but as a building block for the creation of more inclusive and peaceful societies, FFP will provide us with a vision of sustainable peace where women are agents of change and key protagonists.

Broad participation by women has a positive impact in this area. Examples include the mitigation of conflicts and confrontations, attention to the victims of gender violence, and the active participation of women in building and keeping peace.

This has been reflected in the global and regional experience with the development of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, a framework to promote the presence of women in various areas to contribute to peace and security. Likewise, the gender perspective is recognized as an approach that highlights the differentiated impacts that crisis, conflict, and emergency situations have on women, girls, boys, and adolescents in all their diversity and recognizes the need for special protection of their rights.

Women’s participation in this area has become a priority issue for Chile, the first country in Latin America to develop a National Plan for the implementation of Resolution 1325 (2000) and the first in the region to update it in 2015.
