Chapter Summary

In the middle of internal conflict developments, and as a result of negotiations at the international level, the first (UN) operation, United Nations Mission in East Timor (UNAMET), was created in June 1999. From that time, UN operations were to remain involved in Timor-Leste's creation, and consolidation, of independence. This chapter describes developments relevant for understanding gender power-relations while identifying and tracing effects on these power-relations from UN peace operations in Timor-Leste from June 1999 up until March 2006. After delineating the general structure of the operations, focus in this chapter is directed at the creation of security from violence and building political structures. These are areas where we would expect to find particularly fruitful suggestions for theory building.

Keywords: gender power-relations; Timor-Leste's creation; United Nations (UN) operation; United Nations Mission in East Timor (UNAMET)
