Framed in the language of peace (making, keeping, building), the
United Nations military interventions of the 1990s have spawned feminist
demands for participation, together with critiques of the sexist and
gendered practices that have characterized these missions. In Gender,
Conflict, and Peacekeeping, 14 scholar-practitioners relay their
observations of the way in which gender politics pervades UN peace
missions and postconflict reconstruction.
