Description

The unprecedented United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325, established in 2000, radically addressed what we knew about warfare—that civilians and especially women were increasingly targeted—and called for a sea change in the ways women should engage in any rebuilding processes—including conflict management, governance, and peacebuilding efforts. Deconstructing Women, Peace and Security offers a critical review and analysis of many gender-based efforts implemented since 2000, including empowerment policies, strategies, and an in-depth study of four particular cases.
