Openings for Peace : Unscr 1325, Women and Security in India (Hardcover)
about this item
This is one of the first crucial discussions on what can be adapted and implemented in the United Nations Security Council’s Resolution 1325 on women, peace, security (WPS) and militarization in the Indian context. It examines cases that reveal the expanded context of conflict and insecurity, showing the possible relevance and limitations of the UN Resolution as a tool for social and policy change in India.
Being comprehensive in approach, the book links discussions on the WPS resolutions (1325 and its successors) with militarism and explores the relevance of the latter in settings that are not deemed as ‘conflict’. It deliberates the result of militarization and engendered conflict in the Indian states and also discusses Indian peacekeeping operations, which are an important part of India’s international engagement.
