Abstract (Swedish)
This thesis examines the gender language in resolutions from the UN Security-
Council and reports from the Secretary-General in order to determine if there is a
correlation between the two.
The objective of the thesis is to highlight Security Council resolution 1325 on
women, peace and security and its implementation within peacekeeping missions
in order to contribute to advocacy for greater inclusion of women. This is
achieved by examining resolutions and reports pertaining to the peacekeeping

In order to understand the context of resolution 1325 on women, peace and

This thesis examines the gender language in resolutions from the UN Security-
Council and reports from the Secretary-General in order to determine if there is a
correlation between the two.
The objective of the thesis is to highlight Security Council resolution 1325 on
women, peace and security and its implementation within peacekeeping missions
in order to contribute to advocacy for greater inclusion of women. This is
achieved by examining resolutions and reports pertaining to the peacekeeping
mission in Sierra Leone: special attention is given to sexual and gender based
violence (SGBV) and sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) by UN personnel.
In order to understand the context of resolution 1325 on women, peace and
security there is a theoretical review of violence against women in war and
women’s human rights.
The conclusion of this thesis is that there exists a correlation between the
Security Council’s resolutions and the Secretary-General’s reports; a strong
gender perspective in resolutions has a direct effect on reports, especially
concerning sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel due to the specific
requests in resolutions by the Security Council to be informed of these matters. (Less)
