In consideration of UN Resolution 1325, which called for women's equal participation in promoting peace and security and for greater efforts to protect women exposed to violence during and after conflict, this volume takes stock of the current state of knowledge on women, peace and security issues, including efforts to increase women's participation in post-conflict reconstruction strategies and their protection from wartime sexual violence.
