“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store have published a joint op-ed on the role of women in building and maintaining sustainable peace to mark the 10th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.”

The article posits that women’s participation in the peace process is key to the eventual success of peace negotiations and the resulting agreements. 

“Whether they are combatants or survivors, peace-builders or bystanders, women must play a role in the transition from war to peaceful development.”
