05.06.2018 / Created by EMN

In recent decades, women’s issues have gained prominence in international policy-making. However, their presence and role in security and peace building, particularly as active actors in the humanitarian demining and explosive remnants of war sector, is considered as a relatively new phenomenon,

This article sheds light on gender mainstreaming in landmine and explosive remnants of war (ERW) work and the alteration of the stereotypical portrayal of women as victims. The article further argues that Security Council resolution 1325 of 31 October 2000, Marks a new level of awareness by the Security Council of gender issues and promises to pay greater attention throughout the United Nations system not only to meet the needs of women in times of war but also to regard them as an effective partner for peace.
