Synopsis

Women have traditionally been portrayed as extraneous to armed conflicts and peace building processes, due to their passive nature and believed lack of agency.
Conversely, the book advocates for quite the opposite.
Collecting contributions about Countries featuring extremely diverse legal contexts and past histories, the book wishes to prove that women might have a key role in peace processes.
Moreover, describing how women may take an active part in peace building process and in armed conflicts, even directly or indirectly perpetrating war crimes themselves, the book advocates for a critical approach, which rejects one way interpretations and gender stereotypes.
By way of examining emblematic cases on a global and country-specific approach, the book, therefore, offers insights on the status of women in international political affairs and on the concrete realization and ongoing challenges of the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution No. 1325 of 2000 on Women, Peace and Security (WPS).
