An Assessment Of The Implementation Of The United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) And Its Impacts On The Role Of Women In Conflict Management In Kenya
This study investigates the impacts of the implementation of UN resolution 1325 in Kenya on women and conflict management. The main focus of the study sought to find out the impacts of the implementation of UNSCR 1325 ‗Women, Peace, and Security‘ in Kenya. The objectives of the study were to determine the factors affecting the implementation of the UN resolution on the role of women in conflict management in Kenya and exploring the role played by women in conflict and conflict management in Kenya. Women in Kenya played a significant role, and this is seen in the management of Post-Election Violence. The study also established that despite the passage of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) on Women Peace and Security more than a decade ago, there is still slow progress been made to increase women‘s participation in conflict prevention, peace processes and post conflict recovery. Among the factors that hinder the progress in the implementation and incorporation of SCR 1325 are due to a lack of resources, insufficient involvement of women in senior positions of peacekeeping operations, the tendency to focus on women as victims, neglecting their potential to act as key contributors and lack of political will.
