This course is titled "Gender, Peace and Security". The Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda is a normative framework designed to promote gender equality and prevent gender based violence in conflict settings. UN Security Council Resolution 1325 (adopted in 2000) and subsequent resolutions guide policy and programmatic responses in the fields of conflict prevention, humanitarianism, the protection of civilians, peace-keeping and peace-building. This course examines theories of gender and war and the intersections of militarism, statecraft, nationalism, gender, sexuality and reproductive choice. We consider the encounter between international norms and mechanisms designed to prevent violence and promote peace and the strategies of national and locally-based actors. Concepts central to t and ~

he WPS agenda are discussed and challenged in the course material: gender equality and women's empowerment; survivor led-approaches; resilience, resistance and agency; sexual and gender based violence; masculinity; vulnerability; and, intersectionality.
