Doha - Women’s representation in mediation remains persistently low despite normative commitments made to increase women’s roles in peace and security. There is a gap between the peacebuilding work of women mediators and the representation of women in high-level peacemaking.

U.N. Security Council Resolution 1325 recognizes the importance of increasing the role of women in all aspects of maintaining international peace and security, including encouraging women to take an active role in resolving conflicts.
