Implementing the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in the OSCE Region

Co- authored by Henri Myrttinen, Laura J Shepherd, and Hannah Wright

This study provides research-based evidence on the implementation of the WPS agenda across the OSCE region. After providing an introduction to the WPS agenda and the OSCE’s work on its implementation it offers a brief discussion of research on the implementation of the WPS agenda through the development and adoption of NAPs. Chapter Three presents a desk-based analysis of NAPs from the OSCE region. Chapter Four consists of an assessment of the WPS NAP implementation in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Serbia and Ukraine. It draws on field research conducted by the authors in the five countries, consisting of interviews and focus group discussions with relevant members of state agencies, civil society, academia as well as UN agencies and OSCE staff. The concluding chapter presents recommendations for future development of NAPs in the OSCE region.
