Strategizing Beyond the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda in Yemen: the Importance of CEDAW

NAP Signatory ThinkQuantum (Joke Buringa) and Sana'a Center for Strategic Studies published an article about the lack of implementation of the WPS agenda in Yemen both by Yemeni actors and the international community. In fact there is growing resistance towards the implementation. The author refers especially to the need to consider the commitments under CEDAW which has been ratified by Yemen in 1984 and which has so far been overlooked as an appropriate instrument.
