Chapter Summary

This chapter answers the following questions: What can we learn from Timor-Leste? To determine that, it is now time to ask . . ." Is the developed analytical framework fruitful for explaining developments in Timor-Leste? What does it tell us about the gender power-relations concept? And how do peace operations affect these power-relations in a state?. It analyzes the usefulness of the mainstream-based framework and how it can be further advanced. It first assesses and develops the conceptual contribution, primarily on how to understand and measure variation in the two dimensions of political and security equality, concentrating on the latter. It then discusses 'How peace operations affect gender power-relations.' Next, it broadens the scope from the particularly setting in Timor-Leste to a more general one by observing effects from other operations in other countries. These examples are finally discussed in relation to what we have learned from Timor-Leste.

Keywords: gender power-relations; peace operations; Timor-Leste
