Peace needs women.

More and fast.

Index 2021

In the year 2000, the UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security was passed. Now, it is time to take stock: of participation and representation of women at all levels of decision-making in foreign and security policy, and of diversity in Peace and Security in general. For 2021, the #SHEcurity Index has been extended. We have collected data from the EU, its member states, the G20 and countries that have National Action Plans on the WPS Agenda – all of this in five key categories, namely politics, diplomacy, military, police and civil & military missions. Our 2021 version also includes a qualitative part with two separate chapters on “Beyond women” and “Beyond representation”.

mission

There are countless women shaping peace and security around the world. Still too often, they remain unrecognized and under-represented in the field. Resolutions, action plans, and strategies have been written; women have fought loudly for participation and equal opportunities. But things are moving too slowly, prejudices prevail and structural discrimination persists. It is high time to speed things up.
That’s why: Peace needs women. More and fast.
