Abstract

Despite of the acknowledgement of Resolution 1325 that has highlighted the low level of women participation in Peacekeeping Operation (PKO), which resulted in ineffectiveness of PKO, Indonesia contributes the lowest number of women peacekeepers compared to the other Southeast Asian Countries. On the other hand, Indonesia has actually recognized the importance of women’s participation and made progress as Indonesia has increased its female peacekeepers in the UN mission. Several challenges hamper women’s involvement in PKO such as how women need to get husband’s written consent to let his wife takes part in PKO. This could be done by analyzing to what extent the gender mainstreaming has been considered and conducted in Indonesian PKO. The paper concludes that through the gender perspective, the involvement of women in PKO has not accommodated optimally. Within the commitment, Indonesia has recognized the importance of women’s role in the PKO. However, this commitment has not been translated yet through the constitution of Indonesia. Finally, the roles of women in the PKO mission are still limited to their ‘given’ role in society such as clerical staff and desk job compared to the man who actively involved in frontline mission.
