ERC: Gendered Peace

This project seeks to produce a multidisciplinary perspective on a ‘gendered peace’, one that takes into consideration a spectrum of violence in both conflict and peace time. It challenges the accepted orthodoxy of peacebuilding and suggests that taking gender seriously necessitates an alternative paradigm. The research is organised into the following streams:

– Women and Peace/Women and Security

– Gender and Peacebuilding

– Gender and Contemporary Forms of Violence

This project is currently not taking submissions.

AHRC: A Feminist International Law of Peace 

(This project has now ended and we are no longer taking submissions)

This project develops the theoretical foundations and normative content of an international law that can more effectively deliver on gender equality and sustainable peace. The research in this project addresses two of the most pressing problems that we have identified as limiting the potential of the WPS agenda:

– The conceptual ambiguities and normative indeterminacy that characterise the agenda.

– The failure to adopt gender sensitive analysis in respect to conflict prevention.
