Chapter Summary

Guided by the ideas from the analytical framework, the focus of the description is on areas where we expect to find fruitful suggestions for theory building concerning both gender power-relations, and on how an operation affects these relations. That use of the framework provides focus while still allowing for the description to identify additional factors that previous research has overlooked as well as to refine existing ones. This prologue chapter continues with a short description of the material and the time period to provide with a birds-eye view. The description in the chapter is relevant for two reasons: firstly, it provides us with more detailed material to understand and develop the concept of gender power-relations; secondly, it establishes how these power-relations had developed during conflict, which increases the possibility of separating operation effects from those of contextual factors.

Keywords: conflict; gender power-relations; theory building
