The Government will prioritise measures designed to achieve three general aims:
- A considerably larger proportion of women to participate in international peace-support and security-building operations, within the framework of regional and international organisations, and operations to be implemented with a gender perspective in order to increase their effectiveness.
- The protection of women and girls in conflict situations to be strengthened and based on analysis in which women participate actively.
- Women in conflict areas to participate fully and on equal terms with men at all levels in mechanisms and institutions for conflict prevention, crisis management, peace-building, humanitarian operations and other initiatives during a post-conflict phase.
