  1. 1. DOES WOMEN'S POLITICAL EMPOWERMENT IMPROVE GENDER BALANCE IN PEACEKEEPING? A Large N Study of Troop Contributing Countries

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Hanna Buznytska; [2019-03-28]
    Keywords : peacekeeping operations; gender balance in peacekeeping; women’s political empowerment; substantive representation; women’s issues;

    Abstract : Although the United Nations has officially recognized an importance of women’s participation in peacekeeping, the number of female personnel remains low; thus, scholars have been investigating the factors that may facilitate a broader inclusion of women in peacekeeping operations. In order to contribute to the existing literature on the topic, this study examines whether one specific factor, a country’s level of women’s political empowerment, has an impact on the level of gender balance in its peacekeeping troops.

  2. 2. 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.

This study addresses this research gap by comparing three UN enforcement operations: MONUSCO in the Democratic Republic of Congo, UNMISS in South Sudan, and MINUSMA in Mali. READ MORE
