Book launch: Oxford Handbook on Gender, Peace and Security
The seminar will start off with an introduction by Professor Jacqui True, co-editor of the handbook and Director of Monash GPS , followed by a panel discussion (panelists to be announced). Inger Skjelsbæk (STK), Torunn L. Tryggestad and Louise Olsson (PRIO) have contributed to the handbook. At the event you will get the opportunity to meet them and other Norwegian contributors to the handbook.
The Oxford Handbook of Women, Peace, and Security brings together scholars, advocates, and policymakers to provide an overview of what we know concerning what works to promote women’s participation in peace and security, what works to protect women and girls from sexual and gender-based violence and other human rights violations, and what works to prevent conflict drawing on women’s experiences and knowledge of building peace from local to global levels. Just as importantly, it addresses the gaps in knowledge on and the future direction of scholarship on WPS. The handbook particularly aims to build on the findings from the 2015 Global Study of Resolution 1325, commissioned by the UN-Secretary General.
The panel will be followed by mingling and light refreshments.
