Women in peacekeeping operations


Women in peacekeeping operations
As peacekeeping evolved to include a broader humanitarian approach, women became increasingly part of the peacekeeping family.
Women are distributed in all areas - police, military and civilian - and have had a positive impact on the peacekeeping environment, whether by supporting the role of women in peace-building or in the protection of women's rights.
Peacekeeping women have demonstrated that they can play the same roles, at the same level, and in the same difficult circumstances as their male counterparts in all areas of peacekeeping. It has become imperative to recruit and retain women as peacekeepers.
In 1993, women accounted for 1 per cent of deployed personnel in uniform. Today, women account for 4 per cent of the total of approximately 125,000 peacekeepers and 10 per cent of police personnel (see consolidated statistical information on women between military and police personnel in peacekeeping operations for the period 2005-2010) Peacekeeping missions. Women represent approximately 30 per cent of international civilian staff.
For its part, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations continues to respond to the appeal contained in all mandates for women, peace and security, which calls for an increase in the number of women in peacekeeping operations by advocating the recruitment of more women. However, the ultimate responsibility for appointing more women in military peacekeeping operations lies with troop-contributing countries, both military and police.
Why has it become important to have women among peacekeeping personnel?
Women are among the peacekeepers as an example in the local environment, as women and girls inspire male-dominated societies so that each of them can confirm their right to participate in peace processes.
The increasing appointment of women is crucial to:
Empowerment of women in the host community;
Identification of ex-combatants;
Assisting ex-combatants during the demobilization and reintegration process in civilian life;
Expanding the information collection network;
To besiege and search women;
Interviews with victims of gender-based violence;
Directing students of military academies and academies;
Interaction with women in societies where women are prohibited from addressing men.
The presence of women among peacekeeping personnel can help:
Reducing conflict and confrontation;
Improving access to and support for local women;
Empowerment of women in society;
To provide greater security for the local population, including women and children;
Expanding the skills and methods available within the peacekeeping mission.

Trusting Liar (#5) Leave a reply

Trusting Liar (#5)Leave a reply Gertruida is the first to recover. “Klasie…?” “Ag drop the pretence, Gertruida. You all call me ‘Liar’ behind my back, so why stop now? Might as well be on the same page, yes?” Liar’s face is flushed with anger; the muscles in his thin neck prominently bulging. “That diamond belongs to me. Hand it over.” “What are you doing? Put away the gun…” “No! This…,” Liar sweeps his one hand towards the horizon, “…is my place. Mine!  I earned it! And you…you have no right to be here!” “Listen, Liar, we’re not the enemy. Whoever is looking for you with the aeroplane and the chopper….well, it isn’t us. In fact, we were worried about you and that’s why we followed you. We’re here to help, man!” Vetfaan’s voice is pleading as he takes a step closer to the distraught man. “Now, put down the gun and let’s chat about all this.” Liar hesitates, taken aback after clearly being convinced that the group  had hostile intentions. “I…I’m not sure I believe you…” “And we’re neve…
