Chapter Summary

The first section of the chapter outlines the differences between the two utilized research fields-mainstream and feminist research-to clarify how the framework should be understood. To address the gaps identified in mainstream research on peace operations, the chapter draws on gender-specific suggestions from feminist research. The second section organizes and develops the concept of gender power-relations to enhance our ability to trace changes in the power balance between men and women. It clarifies the distinction between gender power relations and the concepts used in feminist research. Two dimensions of gender power-relations are then identified to be of the greatest importance for this project: political equality and security equality. The final section focuses on the question 'What causes change in gender power-relations?' This section systematizes suggestions on potentially relevant peace-operation factors, and considers competing explanations.

Keywords: gender power-relations; peace-operation factors; political equality; security equality
