Finland’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security for 2018–2021 will be launched on Friday, said an official press release.

It is based on UN Security Council Resolutions.

Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini will inaugurate the event.

 “Finland is strongly committed to the 1325 agenda. Mediation is one of my strategic priorities as the Minister for Foreign Affairs. Sustainable peace may be achieved only by involving all parties of society in the dialogue. Several studies indicate that women have an important role in this work,”  said Soini.

The action plan will be implemented in collaboration with different administrative branches. Civil society actors in both Finland and crisis regions play a key role in the implementation and follow-up of the action plan.

Finland’s aim has been to create a realistic and concrete action plan where the focus is on the promotion of action.
