WPSN-C Analysis of the C-NAP & Reports

Beth Woroniuk & and Sarah Tuckey (eds) (2015). Looking Back, Looking Forward: Reflections on Canada’s National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. WPSN-C.

This document contains reflections on the implementation of the C-NAP, the progress reports and related themes. Contributors included academics, practitioners and activists from the WPSN-C. The collection provides an array of perspectives noting where progress was made, where gaps lie and which failures had yet to be reviewed for lessons learned. It also looks forward identifying what to consider when renewing the C-NAP. Lastly, it calls for discussions to take place among all stakeholders (government officials, civil society and academics) to strengthen Canada’s overall approach to Women, Peace and Security issues and in making the C-NAP a key policy directive. The opinions and views expressed in each contribution are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of all Network members or the Network as a whole.
