Jody Neathery-Castro, Ph.D., and Lana Obradovic, Ph.D., of the UNO Department of Political Science will present "20 Years after UN Resolution 1325: Why Women Matter for Peace and Security" on March 3 at 4 P.M. CST.
The year 2020 marked the 20th anniversary of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, which aimed to address the situation of women in conflict. Despite states' implementation of what has come to be known as the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda, discussions on the gendered nature of nuclear narratives and nonproliferation and disarmament negotiations have only begun, while women's participation in the domain of nuclear deterrence remains entirely unexplored.
By examining the overall presence and leadership across the field, we argue that it is imperative to integrate the WPSagenda into deterrence in order to broaden our understanding of women's perspectives, incorporate their risk perceptions, and consider how security policies might have an adverse effect on women and potentially exacerbate already unstable environments.
This event is part of the Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies Across the Curriculum Speaker Series.
