Join is for the presentation of the "Where are the Words? The Disappearance of the Women, Peace and Security Agenda in the Language of Country-Specific UN Security Council Resolutions" report, co-authored between Sarah Kenny Werner (WILPF) and Elena B. Stavrevska (LSE WPS).

The report analyses the obligations that stem from the 10 WPS resolutions, including those for the UN Security Council itself. It further analyses whether the UNSC complies with the obligations it sets out and whether/how it integrates the WPS Agenda in country-specific resolutions, especially the 2018-2019 UNSRCs and those for DRC, Yemen, Libya, and Syria.

Opening remarks will be given by Madeleine Rees, WILPF and Christine Chinkin, LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security.
