This course examines the relationship between gender, violent conflict, and peacebuilding. Participants will consider how war and militarism are highly gendered phenomena that impact men and women differently, and relatedly, how peacebuilding processes account for gendered dynamics. Throughout the course, participants will consider questions such as: how do gender stereotypes influence the way that we think about war and peace? How has feminist peace activism contributed to peacebuilding? Why should peacebuilding processes remain attuned to local women peacebuilders’ needs, and how can they do so? What are the strengths and limitations of the design and implementation of the UN Security Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace, and Security? How does conflict open up potentially transformative spaces for gender relations, and how can peacebuilding processes foster rather than hinder the development of gender equality in post-conflict spaces? Ultimately, participants will gain an understanding of the gendered dimensions of violent conflict and peacebuilding as well as evaluate the respective policy frameworks that address these complexities.


In this course you will:

learn how to analyze the gendered dimensions of violent conflict and peacebuilding, including the various roles women and men play in war and peace.
recognize the importance of applied gender analysis for policy-making and peacebuilding processes.
expand your understanding of peacebuilding processes to include new, gendered strategies for effecting sustainable peace.
strengthen your work in the field of gender and peacebuilding.
exchange experiences and become part of a community of practice.


This course is designed for practitioners and academics interested in complementing their own experiences with current conceptual insights and practical knowledge on gender and peacebuilding
