Building Momentum for the Regional Implementation of A/RES/65/69 on Women, Disarmament, Non-Proliferation and Arms Control

General Assembly resolution 65/69 recognizes the valuable contribution of women to practical disarmament measures in the prevention and reduction of armed violence and armed conflict, and in promoting disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control and calls for the promotion of the equitable representation of women in all decision-making processes with regard to matters related to disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.

 

UNLIREC supports implementation of this resolution by working with national and regional arms control and regulating authorities, law enforcement, judicial operators and legislators to:

 

  • integrate gender-sensitive perspectives into national arms control measures
  • increase participation of female officers working on security and arms control
  • bolster technical capacity of women trained in specialized arms control measures
  • empower women to meaningfully contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through practical disarmament efforts
  • generate evidence-based dialogue on the status of firearms possession and use in academic settings with a focus on women and girls
