Gendering International Relations (GIRWG)
We are a group of scholar-educators who engage in researching how 'gender makes the world go round'. In order to do this, we reach beyond traditional IR to a wide variety of disciplines including Sociology, Politics, Women's Gender Studies, Masculinity Studies, Queer Theory, Cultural Studies and Development Studies, while still maintaining our grounding in IR and global politics. Our members often work in policy-related areas such as human rights, maternity legislation in Europe, and links between UN peacekeepers and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
