Chapter Summary

As the previous missions to Timor-Leste, Namibia, Cambodia, Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Mozambique display, the need for expanding our knowledge about how peace operations affect the power-relations between men and women in the host state was dire. The motivation for expanding research to incorporate effects on gender power-relations was that we thereby improve our understanding of how peace operations promote peace and how unintentional negative side effects can be avoided. To that purpose, this chapter sets out to develop this new topic within the mainstream research tradition by contributing to theory building on both the use of the gender power-relations concept, and on how peace operations affect these power-relations between men and women. This study therefore systematized ideas in previous research into an analytical framework and applied this framework to the case of Timor-Leste. The results displayed the fruitfulness of the selected approach.

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