Beyond Borders Scotland calls application for Women in Conflict 1325 Fellowship Program. The Women in Conflict 1325 Fellowship is based around the principles of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 which “reaffirms the role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflict, peace negotiations, peace-building, peacekeeping, humanitarian response and in post-conflict reconstruction, and stresses the importance of their equal participation in all efforts for the promotion of peace and security”.

In 2020/21, due to the implications of COVID-19, the Fellowship Programme will take place remotely through the use of a video conferencing platform and online resources.


Beyond Borders Scotland Women in Conflict 1325 Fellowship Program aims to

  • Provide a platform enabling the sharing of experiences in relation to UNSCR1325 and the global Women, Peace, and Security agenda; women’s roles in peacebuilding and conflict resolution; and gender equality.
  • Explore the equal and meaningful participation of women in peace processes, peacebuilding, and more widely in society, including identifying challenges and entry points.
  • Facilitate a network of women engaged in an on-going learning and experience sharing process, building a sustainable and evolving alumnae community.
  • Provide guidance on topics including mediation; reconciliation; political participation; transitional justice; constitution-building; gender equality; policy advocacy; and self-care strategies, among others.

Program Summary

The Beyond Borders Scotland Women in Conflict 1325 Fellowship Program facilitates peer to peer learning providing a safe space for fellows to learn from each other through sharing experiences, ideas and challenges faced in their different contexts.
