United Nations Security Council resolution 2532 was adopted on 1 July, 2020.[1] The resolution is a response to United Nations Secretary-General António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres' 'Appeal for Global Ceasefire' of Monday, 23 March, 2020,[2] and, as the first global ceasefire, is part of the United Nations' response to the COVID-19 pandemic.[3]

The resolution demands "a general and immediate cessation of hostilities in all situations on its agenda" (i.e., those already identified by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC)); calls for all parties engaged in armed conflicts (i.e., including those not specifically on the UNSC agenda) to "engage immediately in a durable humanitarian pause for at least 90 consecutive days"; specifically excludes UNSC designated terrorist groups, e.g., the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant; requests that the UN Secretary-General accelerates the international response to the coronavirus pandemic, requests that the Secretary-General regularly updates the UNSC, requests that the Secretary-General instructs peace-keeping operations to provide support and maintain continuity of operations, acknowledges the critical role of women in COVID-19 response efforts and the severe effect on the vulnerable, and decides to maintain oversight.[1]
