WIIS Speaker Series: Dr. J. Ann Tickner—Gendering Peace and Security Studies

Theories and policy practices associated with war and international security have, for the most part, been a masculine domain. Women have stereotypically been associated with peace, and Women’s Studies as an academic discipline has tended to stay away from these issues.

Why is this is the case? Have feminists in the discipline of International Relations begun to bridge this divide and offered newways to understand war and international security and their gendered practices?
