Opportunities and challenges for the implementation of the Women, Peace & Security agenda in areas controlled by armed and political movements
This policy brief enhances our understanding of the role that armed and political movements can play as implementers of the women, peace and security agenda, especially when it comes to ensuring the protection and participation of women and girls in peace and security issues. It offers specific recommendations for international actors on how they can enhance their support for WPS policies and practices in territories controlled by armed and political movements. While this pilot-study only focused on two movements in Myanmar, its implications are relevant for the wider WPS community and policy actors worldwide.
