Women Peace and Human Security: A Guidance Note on Parliamentary Engagement During and Post-Covid-19

Nov 11, 2020

National parliaments have a critical responsibility for overseeing and providing accountability for their countries’ action on COVID-19. All the while, they remain a locus of accountability for their countries’ commitments on women, peace and security (WPS). The guidance note looks at how parliaments can promote WPS-aligned pandemic response and recovery and, in the long term, exercise stewardship over a collective vision for inclusive human security. It identifies ways in which development partners can support parliaments in promoting women’s participation and leadership both during the crisis and beyond, on the path towards 2030.
