Concerning UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (2000) Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) : gender helpdesk assignment about the Occupied Palestinian Territories and UN Security Council Resolution 1325
Summary, in Swedish
This study concerns UN Security Council’s Resolution 1325 and its relevance in the OPT. By reviewing statistics and reports as well as acknowledging socio-cultural understandings of gender relations, it shows how men and women become affected by violence in different ways. In general, women are affected more indirectly than men by violence committed by the Israeli Defence Forces. However, the violence within Palestinian society affects women to a large extent. The findings are related to resolution 1325 and some recommendations are given.
