Military-Police Relations: assessing specialisation and interactive dynamics of female security forces in UN peacekeeping missions in Africa Global attention on gender considerations in peace and security contexts has come to be one of the major concerns of inter-state relations because contemporary armed conflicts increasingly targeted civilian populations; women and girls, in particular. This led to the adoption of Resolution 1325. Since 2000 when the resolution was adopted, gendering security institutions, which emphasizes increasing women's participation in peacemaking, peacekeeping and peace-building, has been an important goal for the UN peacekeeping. This proposal provides an overview of the research in the areas of specialization and cooperation between female security forces to the practical implementation of the resolution. The study examines the areas of specialization, cooperation and interaction in operational mandate, independent and team-work discharge of duties to achieve the common aim, intelligence sharing, training, diversities in response to gender and sexual violence, and the common ground for cooperation and specialization of female security forces in UN peacekeeping missions in Africa, using Liberia and Sierra Leone as case studies.
