Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course will explore core questions in Feminist Peace and Conflict Studies. We will “make feminist sense” of conflict theory and show that looking at conflict theory from a feminist perspective leads us to reassess our ontological and epistemological assumptions. We will focus on important contributions that feminist scholars have made to Peace and Conflict Studies. Additionally, we will discuss central topics like the concepts of security, violence and peace, women`s participation in armed conflict, the gendered effects of peace accords, transitional justice as well as the implementation of United Nations S/RES/1325 (2000) and its consecutive resolutions dealing with Women, Peace, and Security. We look at the main political actors in conflict and peacebuilding and the power relations among them. We use selected case studies to inquire into the gendered nature of conflict and peacebuilding.
