In this research paper, the authors investigate and reveal the “best practices” that feminist organisations have undertaken to build peace. They have used a number of criteria set by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, on the basis of which these best practices were characterised.
Feminist organisations have used a number of strategies and methods, including negotiation, pressure, mobilisation, and networking with various stakeholders, in order to design national action plans and implement the contents of Resolution 1325. These organisations have achieved great successes at the level of the four key points addressed by Resolution 1325. However, this research found shortcomings in their work in terms of involving women in feminist work at the grassroots level, in addition to their inability to provide radical solutions to the challenges facing women’s security and peace.
