This paper seeks to understand the different progress of gender equality between Myanmar and Nepal, which is examined through a comparative case study of UN Women’s actions in each case. The material contains of reports and documents from UN Women’s missions, which will be analyzed through a qualitative content analysis. The analysis is guided by the analytical framework Gender Dimensions in Post Conflict Societies, which dimensions on gender equality, will be applied on UN Women’s actions. The purpose is to provide with an explanation to why the progress of gender equality has been better in Nepal compared to Myanmar. Thus, this study is not only for providing new case studies - but also for examining two cases on depth, which will contribute to the existing research on international peacebuilding and gender equality. The empirical findings indicate that UN Women’s actions probably have had impact on the progress of gender equality in Nepal, while not having the same opportunity to contribute to a better progress of gender equality in Nepal.
