UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (Women Peace, and Security) was a landmark resolution that not only recognised the disproportionate impact of conflict on women, but clearly laid out women’s essential yet often side-lined role in peace processes, countering insecurity and extremism, and sustainably building effective and accountable institutions. Twenty three years later, while considerable progress has been made, it is more relevant than ever.
Siren Associates supports states and organisations working on diverse Women, Peace and Security initiatives in pursuit of this vision. Siren develops gender responsive programs that improve security outcomes for women, girls, men and boys. We use a gender and social inclusion lens to support our partners in identifying how different people experience barriers to security and justice, and to actively address them.
