The international community has progressively realised the importance of gender perspectives in peace processes, not only because of the gendered nature of conflict - which has a differential impact on women and girls, men and boys - but also due to the added value of women's agency in these processes. As such, an issue that has become pivotal in peacekeeping is that of gender mainstreaming. Over time, normative frameworks have evolved. These aim for gender equality, and include United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 1325 and attendant resolutions of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) Agenda. The emerging view is that the inclusion of gender perspectives in the work of peacekeeping has a central role in the continued credibility for peacekeeping operations, and in the overall achievement of sustainable peace and security.
