Gender, Peace And Security: Examining The Assumed Benefits Of Involving Men And Work On Transforming Masculinities In The Implementation Of United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1325 And 1820

This thesis examines the assumed benefits of involving men and work on transforming masculinities when implementing the WPS (Women Peace and Security) agenda focusing on UNSCR (United Nations Security Council Resolutions) 1325 and 1820, in peacebuilding efforts and peacekeeping missions. The thesis result indicates that the assumed benefits are multiple, and that the key reason to include men and to work on transforming masculinities could be that it would mean to take a holistic gender perspective, and to focus on the gendered drivers of conflict as well as the impacts of conflict.
