It’s been 15 years since the UN passed UNSCR 1325. How has Women, Peace, and Security policy changed in Afghanistan and the Congo since then?
Oct. 31, 2000, was a landmark day in the fight for women’s rights. The United Nations Security Council adopted UNSCR 1325 recognizing the disproportionate impact that war and conflicts have on women and children. It was soon followed by six additional resolutions (1820, 1888, 1889, 1960, 2106, and 2122) ensuring full and equal participation of women in post-conflict reconstruction, peace, and security. But ironically, as this landmark resolution celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, experts say that it is far from achieving its goals and has failed in adequate implementation.
On 7th October, 2015, AREU hosted media outlets in Kabul to launch a new report on politicisation of high school students in Afghanistan. AREU researchers Dr. Antonio Giustozzi and Ali Mohammad Ali presented the main findings of the paper titled: “Reaching Boiling Point: High School Activism in Afghanistan” to the media.Wednesday، 28 October، 2015
There is widespread political activism, including an extensive presence of radical activists among high school students in Afghanistan, a new AREU study says. This is despite a government ban on political activism in high schools, which in itself can be argued that is a relic of an authoritarian era.Wednesday، 28 October، 2015
