November 25: Club de Madrid commemorates the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

November 25: Club de Madrid commemorates the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of resolution 1325 on women, peace and security, unanimously adopted in 2000 by the United Nations Security Council.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) reaffirms the important role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts and in peace-building, and stresses the importance of their equal participation and full involvement in all efforts for the maintenance and promotion of peace and security, and the need to increase their role in decision-making with regard to conflict prevention and resolution.

Using UNSCR 1325 as leverage, the project works directly with women leaders and women’s groups in the Greater Horn of Africa and the Andean region to promote interaction and dialogue with national, regional and international decision- making structures and mechanisms to engage in peace and security policy-making. Club de Madrid members and project partners are maximizing the participation and contribution of women in political dialogue and national, regional and international security decision-making.
