Commentary

Palestine is the second country in the Arab States region to develop a National Action Plan.                                 

Women and girls still face incremental discrimination during conflict.                                                         

The Israel-Palestine conflict has been ongoing for several  decades. 

Civil Society

Civil Society have helped to develop the NAP, and will be broadly participating in order to implement the plan,through meetings, workshops and consultations with other actors.

Women in Peacekeeping

The NAP aims to address an increase in female representation in all levels of the  peace-making process.                 

No apparent mention of the recruitment or deployment of women, however, on peacekeeping missions.
