The best guide to UN SCR 1325 and what it means is published by International Alert and Women Waging Peace. Inclusive Security, Sustainable Peace: A Toolkit for Advocacy and Action aims to enable women to engage in peacebuilding and security processes. It is useful as a reference guide, for training and awareness-raising and to enhance understanding and the use of UN SCR 1325 and relevant international agreements, instruments and institutions.

We will be linking to an extract daily, to help explore the issues. The first section gives background and the conceptual framework to UN SCR 1325 (pdf).

Sign the petition: save our Freedom of Information

The UK government is running a secretive unit inside Michael Gove’s Cabinet Office that’s accused of ‘blacklisting’ journalists and hiding ‘sensitive’ information from the public. Experts say they’re breaking the law – and it’s an assault on our right to know what our government is doing.

We’re not going to let it stand. We’re launching a legal battle – but we also need a huge public outcry, showing that thousands back our call for transparency. Will you add your name?
