This project aims to improve the effectiveness of United Nations (UN) operations to protect civilians, particularly women and girls, in fragile and conflict-affected states, by providing decision makers with evidence based knowledge on gender and peacekeeping. The project works to collect, analyse, and distill the contributions made by uniformed women in peacekeeping operations that have influenced peacekeeping mandate outcomes. The UN and Troop and Police Contributing Countries (TPCCs) aim to use this information to make improved gender equality informed decisions, with respect to increasing the number of women in peace operations, and creating a receptive environment for women in uniform. Project activities include: (1) conducting extensive and in-depth academic research to gather and analyse information on operational effectiveness; (2) organizing field visits and interviews with key stakeholders; and (3) providing advocacy and sensitisation activities.
