PS 352 - Gender, Human Rights, and Conflict

(3.00 cr.)

Examines armed conflict as a gendered phenomenon. It begins by asking how gendered relations of power sustain and reproduce various aspects of contemporary warfare and its aftermath. In order to address this query, students engage with readings on how gender figures in the causes of war; the barriers to promoting and protecting gender rights during war and how they may be overcome; and the global movements to incorporate gender more fully in post-conflict reconstruction policies and reforms. Readings include feminist theories on international relations, peace and conflict; substantive empirical work on gender rights violations in conflict zones; and policy documents from both domestic and international forums on peace-building efforts.
