Abstract

After over two decades of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda at the UN Security Council, involving the adoption of ten thematic resolutions, there is now increasing momentum towards the de-centring of the Council from feminist engagement and from broader institutional activity on WPS. Against this backdrop, the article lays out arguments for centring the WPS agenda instead in the UN General Assembly. Given its broader membership and mandate, its role in international law-making, and critically, its leadership on disarmament, the article argues that the General Assembly offers more propitious opportunities for the institutionalisation of a feminist peace agenda.
