This report examines the implementation of UNSCR 1325, what it has accomplished, and its potential in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, the Palestinian territories, and Tunisia fifteen years after being passed by the United Nations Security Council. The report distils lessons and recommendations that are applicable to the Middle East and North Africa region and those relevant to particular nations. The report finds that both men and women need to see the correlation between long-term security and economic development and the implementation of 1325 as well as to embrace and recognise the values of gender justice.
