WIDE+ sent an open letter to the Spanish government that is facilitating the High-Level Review. WIDE+ is concerned about the current popular discourses on counter terrorism that are being voiced by governments in the review of the UNSCR1325. These new discourses run the risk of instrumentalizing the UN Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security and the broader women’s rights agenda into counter terrorism measures through a concept of gender mainstreaming. WIDE+ calls on governments and women’s rights defenders to take a critical stance towards these discourses.
