Women, Peace, and Security is a theme across all of CPPF’s programming, especially under the framework of Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security. CPPF investigates the role of women in peace and security issues and helps the United Nations translate this imperative into practice by promoting the inclusion of women in conflict prevention and resolution, peace negotiations, peace operations, peacebuilding, and post-conflict transitions. As part of this work, CPPF helps the UN understand the impact of conflict on women and vulnerable populations, including, addressing gender-based violence, rape, and other forms of sexual abuse in situations of violent conflict. More broadly, CPPF’s work promotes the participation of women in the public and political spheres. To this end, CPPF not only mainstreams gender issues in its geographic and thematic work but also ensures the participation of women experts in CPPF workshops and activities.
