Abstract [en]

Title: WHOSE PEACE, WHOSE SECURITY? – UN SCR 1325 and the development of gender equality in the area of women, peace and security in Bosnia and Herzegovina

The purpose of the thesis is to investigate the implementation of UN SCR 1325, and whether it has contributed to the implementation of a gender perspective in organizations promoting peace and security in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

A number of concepts within institutionalism and feminism have been combined into a theoretical framework with three concepts as focus of the analysis.

The method used is qualitative text analysis and interviews. Statistics, reports and documents have been compared to primary sources.

The analysis of the study has revealed that there is institutional resistance towards the implementation on UN SCR 1325 in BH. Organizations are following paths of gender inequality and are affected by their organizational field, which has resulted in the Resolution not being prioritized. Furthermore, the study has demonstrated a lack of engagement to the implementation process and organizations, and their institutions, are not receptive or sensitive towards gender issues and gender equality, especially at the governmental level.
