It examines the historical evolution of SCR 1325, as well as debates surrounding its strengths and limitations. It introduces gender and inter-sectional analysis and how these can be applied in practice. We consider some of the methodological and ethical concerns of research/policy on gender in volatile or politically charged settings, and larger geo-political critiques regarding SCR 1325s normative framework. Finally &~ we will examine four themes in conflict affected settings: i. Forced Marriage and Sexual Slavery; ii. Gender based Violence against Men and Boys; iii. Children and Youth; iv. Resilience and Agency.
