International Relations (Gender)

In seeking to 'gender' global politics, this programme explores the discipline of international relations (IR) through the idea that gender matters to the structures, practices and theories of IR. Throughout, an awareness of specific issues relating to broader issues of sex and death in global politics, including rape as a weapon of war, genocide, peacekeeping and post-conflict reconstruction, will be sought and encouraged through committed and extended analysis of key texts and political practices.

Entry requirements

Course modules

Issues examined include: differences or similarities among/between masculine and feminine subjects in their experience of global politics; gendered structures of power in international institutions; gendered logics of global governance; gendered ideas about production, consumption and economic development; gender and security; bodies in global politics.
