We are celebrating the 𝐈𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐒𝐨𝐧𝐚π₯ πƒπšπ² 𝐨𝐟 𝐔𝐍 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐀𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬 (29 𝐌𝐚𝐲).

This year, the challenges and threats faced by our 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞𝐀𝐞𝐞𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐬 are even greater than ever, as they, like people around the world, are not only having to cope with theΒ #COVID-19 pandemic, but also support and protect the people in the countries they are based in. They are continuing their operations to the best of their abilities and supporting the governments and the local populations, despite the risk ofΒ #COVID-19.The theme for this year’s Day isΒ β€œWomen in Peacekeeping: A Key to Peace” to help mark the 20th anniversary of the adoption ofΒ UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security.Women peacekeepers make invaluable contributions to peacekeeping. They help improve overall peacekeeping performance, have greater access to communities, especially to women, and therefore, help in promoting human rights and protection of civilians. They also encourage women to become a meaningful part of peace and political processes; when diverse women participate in peace negotiations,Β the quality and durability of peace agreements increases, and when women are signatories of peace agreements, they are more likely to be implemented, which academic research shows helps to ensure sustainable peace and prosperity.
