Violence and conflict affect women in various ways. The paradox of women’s role in peacemaking is that, while they are severely affected by war, their participation in existing peace processes has been marginal. United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security sought to broaden women’s participation in peace processes and to support their efforts in fostering a culture of peace. This paper analyzes Security Council Resolution 1325 in terms of the justice claims it raises. Using feminist justice theories, it explores the justice dimensions for ensuring meaningful participation of women in peacemaking. This paper will discuss the implications of its analysis of UNSCR 1325 on social work practice. It will outline approaches to increasing women’s participation in peace processes and strengthening feminist-informed social work practice particularly in conflict-affected areas.
