Events & Workshops

Global Society workshop on Gender & Security, 13 January 2017

Global Society: Journal of Interdisciplinary International Relations is hosting a one-day workshop on the theme ‘gender and security’ to be held at the University of Kent (Canterbury, England) on 13 January 2017. The workshop is open to both presenters and non-presenters and we welcome participation from both academics (including PhD students) and practitioners.

The workshop aims to explore gender and security issues that cross and blur boundaries between the local, national, regional, and global, examining all forms of (in)security, including economic, legal, and physical (from inter-personal to sexual violence in conflict). Topics of discussion may include the UN’s 'women, peace, and security’ agenda, gender in conflict and peacebuilding settings, global mobilization on gender and security issues, women leadership on peace and security, cross-national perspectives on domestic violence, as well as the effect of gender and security on women’s empowerment, state building and state security. The workshop will culminate in a set of papers to be published in a special issue of the journal in 2018) to be edited by Andrea den Boer and Ingvild Bode.
