Aim of the project
ILPI provides policy advice and research on women, peace and security issues, and sexual and reproductive health and rights for the UN Section in the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This work is supporting the implementation of Norwegian policy and international obligations in these two areas.
The Security Council resolutions on women, peace and security are to be integrated into all Norwegian efforts, which entails input and follow up on political processes on humanitarian efforts, peace and reconciliation work, security policies, bilateral efforts in conflict and post-conflict countries, cooperation with the UN-system, NATO, partner countries and other international organizations, and other relevant areas. ILPI provides policy advice and input to these processes, and on developing internal policy notes, plans and guidelines.
The work on sexual and reproductive health and rights aims at contributing to preserve and strengthen international consensus on this area. ILPI provides policy advice on international promotion of Norwegian policy, especially towards and in cooperation with the UN-system, partners and the international civil society.
