What are the Benefits and Shortcomings of Resolution 1325? A Case Study Exploring The Implementation of UNSCR 1325 in Rwanda and the Role of Women in Peace Processes Through Feminist Theory
Sammanfattning: Increasing women’s participation in peace processes has been a multilateral goal since the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1325 in 2000. This bachelor thesis explores the benefits and shortcomings of the implementation of The United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 in Rwanda through a case study. The research question has therefore been phrased as following; What are the Benefits and Shortcomings of Resolution 1325? A Case Study Exploring The Implementation of UNSCR 1325 in Rwanda and the Role of Women in Peace Processes Through Feminist Theory. It is conducted through a literature review consisting of qualitative secondary data in the form of academic articles. Firstly, the thesis presents background on the context, previous research through academic articles which acts as data, and the theoretical framework consisting of two different feminist theoretical approaches, liberal feminist approach and standpoint feminist approach. The thesis then goes on to account for the methodology and case study, before, through literature review, analysing the the benefits and shortcomings of Resolution 1325 and the role of women in peace processes. It establishes that while Resolution 1325 has been a crucial implementation for the work regarding women’s involvement in peace processes, and is working towards gender equality and justice, the feminist framework which it is developed through may need to be specified. The research therefore concludes that the knowledge generated from women’s voices needs to become more central independent of case and feminist discipline.
