Women, Peace and Security in Iraq


Iraq's National Action Plan (INAP) to implement the Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security was launched in 2014. This policy report on INAP is written by Dr Zeynep N. Kaya from the LSE Middle East Centre and the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security.

The author argues that the Resolution 1325 is relevant for women in Iraq, and that the launch of the INAP to implement it is an important step for Iraqi women. The report then offers an overview of the issues women face in Iraq and provides an assessment of INAP, stressing that specific issues related to conflict and insecurity in Iraq are not adequately addressed. Finally, it offers recommendations to policymakers, international organisations and civil society organisations for the effective implementation of 1325.
