New book on women, peace and security

The FBA’s Research Working Group on UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (UNSCR 1325) is now launching a new book, “Gender, Peace and Security: Implementing UNSCR 1325”.

The book is published by Routledge and edited by Louise Olsson, Head of Research and Policy at the FBA’s UNSCR 1325 Programme, and Theodora-Ismene Gizelis, Professor at the University of Essex.

15 years after the passing of the UNSCR 1325, women are still excluded from peace processes and their protection remains limited. In other areas, we have seen more progress. Gender has now started to become a recognized part of international peace and security considerations.

The new book offers central insights into the challenges and progress made in the implementation process. It specifically examines three key areas of the resolution – women’s participation in peace operations and peace processes, women’s protection during conflict, and gender mainstreaming of security and development – and assesses the work with translating the policy commitments into concrete action.

The book has important implications for the future work on women, peace and security and shows why gender dynamics are central to the understanding of peace and security.
