Commentary

This  is the Czech Republic's first Action Plan. It is currently involved in  multiple conflicts as a member of NATO. Since its split with Slovakia in  1993, citizens, particularly women are still facing the risk of  discrimination and GBSV.

Civil society

The Action Plan had been developed through the participation of representatives  of Civil Society Organisations and other actors. And one measure of the  Action Plan refers to the greater integration between the military and police  task forces and the non-governmental sector.

Women in Peacekeeping

The Czech Republic Action Plan is actively trying to support the increased  representation of women in the military and police forces through monitoring  the data of men and women entering the security sector, and by promoting this  through colleges and universities, too.
