  3. 3. Participation vs Protection : A quantitative content analysis of ‘Women, Peace and Security’ in the Swedish statements in the United Nations Security Council 2017-2018

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Sara Nuder; [2019]
    Keywords : UN Security Council; Resolution 1325; ‘Women; Peace Security’; WPS-agenda; Swedish Feminist Foreign Policy;

    Abstract : This paper takes its point of departure in the skewed attention towards the ‘protection’ of women rather than the ‘participation’ of women when talking about ‘Women, Peace &Security’ (WPS) in the UN Security Council. Given the centrality of Sweden, as the first country in the world with a feminist foreign policy, this thesis fills a gap in the current research as it investigates whether this skewed attention was reflected during Sweden’s time as a non-permanent member in the UNSC 2017-2018 or not.
