Abstract
The United Nation Security Council (UNSC) resolution 1325(2000) could be portrayed as a revolutionary resolution with its focus on women and their role in conflict. No matter how important the resolution may be, it is of great importance to see if the United Nations live by their own rules - and uses 1325(2000) as a framework for their succeeding resolutions - or if it is just empty rhetoric. Therefore, in this study, we have analysed if 1325(2000) has had an impact on the UNSC resolution that has led to the establishment of UN peacekeeping

Therefore, in this study, we have analysed if 1325(2000) has had an impact on the UNSC resolution that has led to the establishment of UN peacekeeping
operations. We have also examined if 1325(2000) has changed the UN:s approach towards women, gender and sexual violence in conflicts.

This study has been conducted by a textual and conceptual analysis of 27 UNSC resolutions between 1988 and 2014, which all have established UN peacekeeping operation. By analysing the frequency and the context of attributes relevant for the progression of 1325(2000), we have been able to conclude that 1325(2000) has made a clear difference in how women, gender and sexual violence in conflicts are portrayed in the resolutions.
