“The solution is her” is a film about the importance of women in peacebuilding processes.

In 2015 fifteen years had passed since the UN security council adopted the resolution 1325 regarding women, peace and security. The resolution is based on the fact that war affects women, men, boys and girls differently. Resultantly, women’s experiences and contributions in finding solutions to conflicts are often overlooked.

By focusing on this we are hoping to make people all over the world aware of how women play a crucial role in peacebuilding and peacekeeping processes. Inclusive processes where all parts of the population’s needs are considered and prioritized are the most efficient way to ensure stable peace.
