The first report for the current UK National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2018 to 2022 (NAP) reviews UK progress in delivering our commitments over the past year. It forms part of wider efforts to ensure that the UK’s foreign policy consciously and consistently protects and includes women and girls. It was laid in Parliament with a ministerial statement by the Foreign Secretary.
Study points to new ways to reduce conflict in fragile states
A major research project by the UK's Stabilisation Unit explores the vital role of political deal-making in reducing violent conflict.
The Elite Bargains and Political Deals research indicates that greater focus on the politics of conflicts, and those who control power and resources on the ground, is crucial to reducing violence.
The Minister for the Middle East and for International Development Alistair Burt said:
This report sets out the cross-Government action that the UK has taken to improve gender equality, tackle sexual violence in conflict, and protect vulnerable people in conflict zones from sexual exploitation and abuse.
We are proud that the UK continues to lead the world on the Women, Peace and Security agenda, delivering on our commitments under our National Action Plan through practical support, diplomatic action, and funding.
