(p.138) Chapter 6 Conclusions
Gender, Sex, and the Postnational Defense

Annica Kronsell

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the book by highlighting the findings in relation to the following themes: the way that UN SCR 1325 has impacted peacekeeping and other post-national defense practices, how women have been conceptualized as peacekeepers by outlining the relationship between military institutions and sexuality, relating the findings on the relationship between militarism and the gender order, and discussing the role of cosmopolitan values in the post-national defense. Finally, the conclusion suggests that to deal with the unresolved ambivalence on the use of violence in peacekeeping operations it may be useful for feminists to engage with post-national defense practices and turn to feminist ethics of war and peacekeeping. Feminists would not remain “innocent” as the “beautiful souls”, as pacifists or anti-militarists, but have agency and the possibility to propose alternatives

Keywords:   feminist ethics of war, UN SCR 1325, military institutions, sexuality, pacifism, anti-militarism
