In June 2008, the Security Council passed resolution 1820 on women, peace and security. The resolution represents a crucial recognition of the consequences of sexual violence in war, both for individual victims and for broader communities and a lasting peace, and commits the issue to the attention of the Security Council, Secretary General, and UN. Resolution 1820 builds on resolution 1325 (2000).
The Secretary-General’s report on implementing Security Council resolution 1820 has now been published. You can download the report (in the 6 UN languages) here.
