Abstract

Between 1989-1996 and 2000-2003 a civil war took place in Liberia. During the war many, many people were killed or were forced to flee. Another of the war's characteristics was the high number of women being sexually abused and beaten by the soldiers. The aim of this thesis is to analyze to what degree the peacekeeping personnel in Liberia, foremost staff working for the UN and agencies related to the UN, have implemented Resolution 1325 in their work.

The aim of this thesis is to analyze to what degree the peacekeeping personnel in Liberia, foremost staff working for the UN and agencies related to the UN, have implemented Resolution 1325 in their work. Resolution 1325 was adopted by the members of the United Nations Security Council in year 2000 and aims to increase the efforts made to secure women's rights and security in parts of the world where war and crisis prevail. It is also the resolution's aim to increase the number of women working within peacekeeping missions. A second aim of this thesis is to study what factors can explain the ways the resolution has, or has not, been implemented in Liberia. The thesis takes a theoretical starting point in the idea that in order for women's rights to be highlighted enough within the international politics and peacekeeping missions, more women have to be able to get their voices heard within the politics. The conclusion of this thesis is that the implementation of Resolution 1325 in Liberia has been successful in many aspects although there still are certain issue areas within which the resolution has not yet played the role that the international community hoped for.
