About this book

This book examines how the Security Council has approached issues of gender equality since 2000. Written by academics, activists and practitioners the book challenges the reader to consider how women's participation, gender equality, sexual violence and the prevalence of economic disadvantages might be addressed in post-conflict communities.

Reviews

“This is an extremely informative, rich, and thoughtful publication, essential to all of those who … are interested in what lies beyond the basic notion of ‘women’s participation’ in peace keeping. It is, however, a demanding read because of the complexity and number of themes and positions that intersect within and between the different articles. Both the Introduction and the Concluding Remarks offer very worthwhile reading as stand-alone articles … .” (Ines Smyth, Gender & Development, Vol. 23 (3), November, 2015)

“This inspiring and thought-provoking edited collection provides an excellent basis for re-imagining peacekeeping through the lens of gender equality. … The book will appeal to a wide range of audiences ranging from postgraduate students and academic scholars to activists and policy-makers. … this book is a welcome and valuable addition to the scholarship in the field and should be recommended reading for anyone with an interest in gender and/or international security and peacekeeping.” (Solange Mouthaan, Feminist Legal Studies, Vol. 23, 2015)
