Spring 2011

Gender & Security Seminar Poster

The Gender and Security Seminar Series is a survey of six topics focused on the relationship between conflict, peace and gender. The seminar series will examine how integrating a gender perspective within the security sector redefines security to include human security, and addresses issues of statebuilding that are often overlooked and understudied, such as inclusion, and improving state-responsiveness. Topics include women and peace negotiations, gender and national security policymaking, masculinities, violence, and peace, and UN 1325 and operational effectiveness.

Sahana Dharmapuri, Carr Center Fellow, is leading the series.
