Equal Opportunity Peacekeeping: Women, Peace, and Security in Post-Conflict States

The women, peace, and security agenda has been at the forefront of international politics over the past decade. The United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations has been integrating women into peacekeeping missions for nearly two decades. To what extent have peacekeeping operations achieved gender equality both within the organization and in host countries?

While there have been major improvements related to women's participation and protection, there is still much left to be desired. Discrimination, a relegation of women to safe spaces, sexual exploitation, abuse, harassment, and violence (SEAHV) continue to threaten progress on gender equality.

Join Sabrina Karim, assistant professor in the Department of Government at Cornell University, for a book talk at Olin Library. Her new book, "Equal Opportunity Peacekeeping" (Oxford University Press, 2017) is coauthored by Kyle Beardsley, and it was the winner of the Conflict Research Studies Best Book Prize for 2017.
