UNSC Resolution 1325

FAS lobbied for and embraced the adoption of Resolution 1325 by the United Nations Security Council in October 2000. FAS contributes to the implementation and monitoring of Resolution 1325 through the Working Group on Peace in New York and the NGO-CSW Working Group on Peace, which is chaired by FAS in Geneva, Switzerland.

Human Rights Council & Committee Commission on the Status of Women

FAS has been using its participation in the sessions of the Human Rights Council held in Geneva and the UNCSW in New York to advocate for the concerns and priorities of African women, bringing women from the field to share their experiences and concerns.

Opening of New York Office

FAS's Liaison Office in New York was first set up in late 2004 to provide FAS with permanent representation in New York and at the deliberations of the organs and agencies of the UN system, as focal point for FAS network. The New York Office has been located since March 2005 in close proximity to the UN and NGOs working in the same field, in the Church Centre of the United Nations Plaza.
