Nina Wilén's latest article is now open access in International Affairs.

Nina Wilén’s article about how the ‘added value’ of female peacekeepers risks becoming an ‘added burden’ is now open access in International Affairs.

In this article, Nina argues that discussions about female peacekeepers’ "added value" may increase gender inequality, due to the added burden that it places upon female peacekeepers - a burden which is not carried by their male counterparts and therefore not conducive to gender equality. Drawing on extensive empirical material and experiences from peacekeepers, Wilén demonstrates how female peacekeepers often work double shifts in order to fulfil the expectations of providing an ‘added value’.
