Gender and International Relations
An overview of feminist perspectives on international relations. New gendered theories have challenged the assumptions of mainstream analysis. These theories are applied to issues such as war/conflict and security, post-conflict peacebuilding, democracy and democratisation, nationalism, religion and identity politics, human rights, migration, globalisation and political economy, with reference to the emergence of transnational feminist networks and their potential to affect power shifts in local, national and international politics.
