UN Resolutions on Women, Peace & Security

Fountain-ISOKO leverages a number of different international laws, including UN Resolutions, to advance the effective engagement of Burundian women in local peace and development.

In 2000, UNSC made history by adopting the Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace & Security. This resolution calls for the active participation of women at all decision-making level to establish peace, protect them from basic rights violations, provide access to justice and services and to fight against all forms of discrimination.

Since 2010, Fountain-ISOKO implements the in-country monitoring of the UNSCR 1325 project in partnership with other local civil society organizations.
