Message to students

My research/activism theme has been on the issues of militarism, militarization and demilitarization, and decolonization, analyzing them from a gender perspective. Gender analysis of peace and security has gained visibility by the decades of works of scholars and activists, and now it is one of the most important fields of research that is essential in addressing such issue as gender-based and sexual violence in conflicts or conflict-affected areas. A gender perspective, through looking at the power configuration of femininities and masculinities in our daily lives provides us with an eye-opening insight to making links between our everyday activities and international peace and security problems.
