Denmark-2015 Commitments

Adopted the third national action plan, for the period 2014-2019 last year, which will continue to emphasize using the untapped potential of women and seek to involve women actively, on an equal basis, in the prevention and resolution of conflicts, in peace negotiations, peacebuilding and peacekeeping, in humanitarian response and in post- conflict reconstruction and commits to concrete actions in order to achieve those ends.

Will focus on promoting women as peacebuilders within Danish-funded programmes in fragile and conflict-affected States.

Military deployments to peacekeeping missions will all receive mandatory training on the role of gender in peace-support operations and will immediately investigate suspected criminal misconduct during deployments and, when relevant, ensure the prosecution of alleged perpetrators. Furthermore, will continue to focus on the recruitment of Danish female officers, including police officers, to international missions, including for leadership functions.
