 missions, including disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration. 

4. To protect womens' and girls' human rights in conflict and
 post-conflict countries, especially in combating sexual and gender-based


The Argentinian NAP focuses on the importance of strengthening women's inclusion
 and participation in politics, and on introducing gender perspectives in all
 matters of security.

Civil Society

 society actors were early convened to participate in the development of the
 plan. Women's organisations were consulted on their specific proposals and
 given the opportunity to incorporate their inputs in the development process.
 The NAP does not however mention that civil society actors will play a part
 in the monitoring and/or evaluation of the plan.

Women in Peacekeeping

 NAP assigned several actions to the Argentinian state related to the
 deployment and participation of women in "peace missions". One task
 assigns the responsibility to identify the breakdown of deployment in peace
 and humanitarian missions according to sex/task, and "include statistical data on the willingness of the female candidates to deploy in
 peace missions". Another specifically mentions increasing female personnel's participation in the army and in the security forces deployed in
 peace missions.

UN Peacekeeping Statistics

As of 2021, Argentina provides 298 peacekeepers, 34 of which are women.
