Women, Peace and Security

Recognizing the slow development of  the "Women, Peace and  Security" agenda in Armenia, and also placing much importance on women’s security and participating in peace-building and decision making processes, SWV NGO has projects which aim to  raise women's participation in the peacebuilding process since 2011. Forming its “Women, Peace and Security” pillar in 2011, the organization began to spread the “Women in Black” international feminist movement in Armenia, especially among young women living in Armenia’s different regions. Since 2016, with the efforts of SWV, the "Women in Black" movement in Armenia has acted as an independent body and is governed by its own young members. 
In 2013 with efforts, and in partnership with some companies, an Armenian monitoring group for UN Security Council Resolution 1325 was established, which had to prepare monitoring reports on the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in Armenia. In 2015, within the frameworks of peacebuilding, the organization actively started an advocacy process aimed at raising awareness about UN Security Council Resolution 1325, which in its turn will contribute to the adoption of Resolution 1325 in the National Action Plan. At the start of the process an advocacy guide, "Women, Peace and Security", was created for the UN Security Council Resolution 1325. In 2015-2016, SWV further strengthened its cooperation with "The Global Network of Women Peacemakers ". This resulted in a new project which aims to create a program of national activities about UN Security Council Resolution 1325 in Armenia in close cooperation with state authorities.
