Implementing the “Women, Peace and Security” agenda in Brazil

This article presents an analysis of the content of the National Plan of Action (NAP) on women, peace and security, a document adopted by Brazil on March 8, 2017, in response to United Nations calls for its member states to promote national strategies for implementation of the commitments made by Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000).

The publication aims to identify the key advances introduced by the plan, as well as the substantive, operational and methodological challenges to achieving its goals.

Finally, some recommendations are presented aimed at fostering public debate on the “Women, Peace and Security” agenda in Brazil and promoting the critical engagement of key actors involved in the implementation of the Brazilian goals.
