Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course will explore core questions in Feminist International Relations. How are the paradigms and concepts of the main theories in International Relations gendered? How will our understanding of international relations change if we apply a gender perspective? Which concepts and methodologies have scholars of Feminist IR developed? Additionally to the discussion of different feminist theoretical approaches, the participants will become familiar with central debates of the discipline of IR, gender perspectives on conflict and peace research as well as on international development. We will discuss central topics like the concept of security, women`s participation in armed conflict and in post-conflict peacebuilding, the implementation of United Nations S/RES/1325 (2000) and its consecutive resolutions dealing with Women, Peace, and Security. Another part will deal with development, transnational feminism, the World Conferences on Women and Women`s Rights as Human Rights.
