Chapter Summary

Gender main streaming is a phrase commonly employed in post conflict reconstruction, and it is critical to examine the existing international standards for mainstreaming gender and how they are being implemented. This chapter first shows the relationship between state fragility and gender equity, establishing the utility of looking at gender as a category. Then, in order to show how gender remains outside the main stream, it critiques the most prominent and recent evaluative tools for state security and fragility that are applied in the United States. Finally, it suggests how assessments of state security should incorporate gender, providing a rubric for measuring gender equity. The chapter seeks to develop tools for a more accurate assessment of a states security in order to accomplish two other goals: to improve the situation of women by providing tools for making gender central and to reduce the fragility of states by increasing gender equity.
