The State of World Population 2010: From conflict and crisis to renewal

The State of World Population 2010: From conflict and crisis to renewal

This report coincides with the 10th anniversary of UN Security Council Resolution 1325, the first formal attempt of this body to redress the absence or low level of women’s participation in peace and reconstruction efforts. Previous reports related to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) mandate were academic, whereas this one takes a more journalistic approach; it features individuals speaking for themselves about their experiences. A diverse selection of interviews and reporting has been chosen from the following locations containing a UN presence: Bosnia, Herzegovina, Haiti, Jordan, Liberia, the Occupied Palestinian Territory (West Bank), Timor-Leste and Uganda. The main sections of this report are:

1. Bosnia and Herzegovina as catalyst of change
2. A resolution and reality: a decade on the ground
3. Women on the front lines of recovery
4. In times of crisis, gender relations in flux
5. Youth: the future of post-conflict societies
6. Living without an anchor: refugees and the internally displaced
7. Imprisoned at home: life under occupation
8. And the next ten years?
