Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In 2000 the Security Council unanimously adopted the UN Resolution 1325 on “women, peace and security”. The Resolution urged member states to take action to protect women and to involve them as equal actors in conflict prevention, conflict resolution and peacebuilding. To take action, several member states developed National Action Plans to foster methods and tools to improve women’s participation. Two of those countries were Sweden and France. With a theoretical starting point in gender mainstreaming, the Author use a qualitative text analysis to compare the French and Swedish National Action Plan for implement Security Council Resolution 1325 on “women, peace and security”. The comparison is executed by analyzing the 18 paragraphs of the UN Resolution 1325. Then, Resolution 1325 is used as a model to compare the two action plans and following to investigate the two countries’ interpretation. Since the UN Resolution 1325 does not make any priorities or specify any interests before another in the resolution, there could be some variations. The aim is to investigate if there are any obstacles for collaboration between Sweden and France in international operations on “women, peace and security” matters. This is interesting because the countries both have international commitments within the United Nations and the European Union.
