PRESS RELEASE 150
Spain heads up Women, Peace and Security Agenda of Human Rights Council
07/10/2020

Today, the Human Rights Council unanimously approved, upon a proposal from Spain, the resolution entitled “To protect and promote the human rights of women and girls in conflict and post-conflict situations on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325”, which was backed by 66 co-sponsors.

The adoption of the resolution reflects Spain’s commitment to gender equality and the Women, Peace and Security agenda, and clearly shows the interest of the international community in the effective participation of women in all phases of conflict prevention and resolution, and in peacekeeping and peacebuilding.

The presentation of the resolution was made jointly with a group of promoting countries (Australia, Finland, Tunisia, Azerbaijan, Argentina and Iraq) through a negotiation process of an open and transparent text which has been shored up today in the adoption of the resolution.

The resolution commissions the High Commissioner’s Office to draw up a report to review the state of the implementation of this agenda by the Human Rights Council, a report which will be discussed at an interactive dialogue within the framework of the Council’s next session. The resolution promotes the joint and coordinated work of United Nations bodies.

The adoption of the resolution is a tangible example of Spain’s leadership on the matter of gender equality, a strategic priority of Spain’s foreign policy.
