The final case study explores children fathered by members of peacekeeping forces. It investigates the specific nature of peacekeeping societies and the gendered power relations within those, which have led to numerous more or less exploitative relations with significant numbers of so-called peace babies being conceived. The chapter critically analyses UN attempts at both regulating military-civilian relations in its zero-tolerance policies and at recognising the need for troops under UN flag to take responsibility for children fathered peacekeepers.
