During this publication, Andrzej Sitkowski confronts easy peacekeeping myths. First, the assumption that peacekeeping is become independent from peace enforcement blurs this distinction and undermines the viability of peacekeeping operations.

Institutions often govern the behavior of a set of individuals in a given community or organization. Governments and international organizations may be thought of as formal institutions. We include PKOs, as well as national militaries and police organizations, as formal institutions in the security sector. 9 As such, there are power differentials between institutional actors that arise from differential access to resources. This access is tied to “rules and worldviews” (Olsen, 2009: 9). Dana Britton (2000: 419) explains how institutions may be gendered—that is, “institutions are defined, conceptualized, and structured in terms of a distinction between masculinity and femininity”—and are often male or female dominated.
For example, according to Annica Kronsell (2012: 51–54), women constantly negotiate their identities in a military setting. They may adopt different identities, such as the “bimbo”—the very feminine, beautiful sex object—or, in contrast, the “feminist,” who actively and “too eagerly” pursues gender equality and challenges the gender hierarchy. ” This identity negotiation by women also occurs in policing (Rabe-Hemp, 2008). Military institutions may even engage in overt practices to try to maintain strict gender dichotomies for men and women.
With regard to sexual violence, despite the comprehensive normative framework, there are very few actual prosecutions, particularly at the national level. Women’s participation in formal negotiations and peacekeeping also remains limited. In addition, only fifty-four countries have adopted National Action Plans (NAPs) for UNSCR 1325, and funding for programs related to gender equality remains a challenge. Like the other reports, the 1325 Review also makes recommendations for better implementation, to which we return in the conclusion of the book.
