This paper analyzes the United Nations' implementation of Resolution 1325 in UN Peacekeeping Operations. Seven criteria were derived from the Secretary General's Reports on Women, Peace, and Security: Peacekeeping Operations; Post-conflict Reconstruction; Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration; Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence; Gender Balance; Preventing and Responding to Gender-Based Violence by UN Personnel; and Monitoring and Reporting. These criteria were applied to four case studies: the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the United Nations Organization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC), the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), and the United Nations Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT). Each case study provides a description of the activities conducted and an evaluation for each criterion. The paper makes conclusions about the effects of specific characteristics of some of the cases and about areas in which the UN needs broader solutions. Specifically, suggestions are made for improved UN efforts in Gender Balance, Responding to Gender-Based Violence by UN Personnel, and Monitoring and Reporting.
