  • Eriksson Baaz, Maria, et al. (författare)
  • The Complexity of Violence: A critical analysis of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
  • 2010
  • Rapport (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This report, the first in Sida’s gender-based violence series, draws on an original case study, including extensive interviews with members of thearmed forces in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). By critically exploring and convincingly challenging existing stereotypes and narratives about sexual violence in conflict settings, the authors reveal the need for a nuanced understanding of SGBV, including its invisible victims. Their analysis transcends reductionist explanations that separate SGBV from other forms of violence that afflict war-torn societies, and haunt post-war contexts. They thus provide invaluable insights into the complex circumstances in which SGBV occurs.

  • Fearless Fighters and Submissive Wives: Negotiating Identity among Women Soldiers in the Congo (DRC)
  • 2013
  • Ingår i: Armed forces and society. - 0095-327X. ; 39:4, s. 711-739
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This article addresses an underreported aspect of contemporary warring in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): the experiences of women soldiers and officers in the Congolese national armed forces (Forces Armées de la République Démocratique du Congo [FARDC]). It thus addresses an empirical gap in scholarly and policy knowledge about female soldiers in national armies on the African continent, and the DRC in particular. Based on original interviews, the article explores the way female soldiers in the FARDC understand their identities as “women soldiers” and offers new insight into women soldiers’ role and responsibilities in the widespread violence committed against civilians in the DRC. Moreover, it explores how their understanding of themselves as “women soldiers” both challenges and confirms familiar notions of the army as a masculine sphere. Such insight is important for better understanding the gendered makeup of the military and for contributing to a knowledge base for Security Sector Reform in this violent (post)conflict setting.

  • Research in the Rape Capital of the World: Fame and Shame
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Masquerades of War. - New York : Routledge. - 9781138810693 ; s. 197-206
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • This collection explores the concepts and practices of masquerade as they apply to concepts and practices of war. The contributors insist that masquerades are everyday aspects of the politics, praxis, and experiences of war, while also discovering that finding masquerades and tracing how they work with war is hardly simple. With a range of theories, innovative methodologies, and contextual binoculars, masquerade emerges as a layered and complex phenomenon. It can appear as state deception, lie, or camouflage, as in the population-centric American warfare in Iraq that was sold as good for the local people, or the hidden violence Russian military forces used on each other and on local men in Chechnya. Masquerade can also be part of a people's war logic as exemplified by the Maoist movement in India. Yet masquerade can also be understood as a normal social mask that people don to foreground an identity or belief from one's cluttered repertoire in order to gain agency. Elements of masquerade can appear in texts that proclaim seemingly unequivocal positions while simultaneously yet subtly suggesting opposing positions. Masquerades of all kinds also seem ubiquitous in fieldwork research and in resistance movements in war zones. Perhaps masquerade, though, is ultimately the denial of death lurking behind the clarion call of security, a call that bolsters war by making militarized policing normal to secure populations from terrorists. These interpretations and others comprise Masquerades of War. This book will be of much interest to students of critical war studies, critical security, conflict studies and IR in general.

  • Telling Perpetrator’s stories: a reflection on effects and ethics
  • 2015
  • Ingår i: Teaching About Rape in War and Genocide. - London : Palgrave. - 9781137499158
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • How to teach about rape in war and genocide? This edited volume draws on the expertise of scholars and human rights practitioners to explore that crucial question. Across the chapters its authors address five questions: Why teach about rape in war and genocide? Who should teach and learn? What needs to be taught? How should one teach? Where and when should teaching take place? Offering guidance for teaching and discussion, this study combines research and pedagogical experience to make the volume useful not only as a pedagogical guide but also as a source that advances understanding about, and resistance against, a major atrocity that besieges human flourishing.
  • Gelot, Linnéa, 1978- (författare)
  • The Role and Impact on the African Union
  • 2016
  • Ingår i: Political Rationale and International Consequences of the War in Libya. - Oxford : Oxford University Press. - 9780198767480 ; 368
  • Bokkapitel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The volume provides analysis of the larger and more overarching dynamics and consequences of the UN Security Council passing UNSC Resolution 1973. It incorporates the perspectives of nations, regions, and actors rarely featuring in the scholarly literature to date
  • A place to live. Gender research on housing in Africa
  • 1996
  • Samlingsverk (redaktörskap) (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Be it a house or a makeshift, a shared or rented room, or a home of one's own, a place to live is central in surviving strategies of all urban households. In this volume the authors explore the gendered experiences of housing and housing rights in African countries. There are many differences but also many similarities in the pattern of women not having the same access and control over housing as men have. While women often are the bread-winners, they are also the home-makers, in the sense that it is women who put intense efforts in making a place home.
