Overview

Peacekeeping has become a major international undertaking throughout the world, from Africa to the Americas, from Europe to Southeast Asia. Yet until now, there has been no systematic analysis of the key role of gender in post-Cold War conflicts and postconflict peacekeeping efforts. This groundbreaking volume explores how gender has become a central factor in shaping current thinking about the causes and consequences of armed conflict, complex emergencies, and reconstruction. Drawing on expertise ranging from the highest levels of international policymaking down to the daily struggle to implement peacekeeping operations, this work represents a wide span of knowledge and experience about international intervention in local crises. Presenting a rich array of examples from Angola, Bosnia, East Timor, EI Salvador, the former Yugoslavia, Guatemala, Haiti, Kosovo, Liberia, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, and Serbia, the authors offer important insights for future peacekeeping and humanitarian missions.

This volume explores how gender has become a central factor in shaping current thinking about the causes and consequences of armed conflict, complex emergencies, and reconstruction.

Ariane Brunet
This invaluable study makes compelling linkages between the political use of gender in conflict and peacekeeping and the blurring of the lines between victims, perpetrators, and combatants in today’s wars. It is a must for activists, academics, policymakers, and the general public in our militarized world.
