IPOL 319 - Women, Peace, and Security
The course will introduce students to the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. Students will examine the gendered aspects of conflict and peace including the role women play in national and international security, conflict resolution, peace-building, and post-conflict recovery. Drawing on original research from the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, the course will explore the impact of women’s participation in armed conflict, conflict prevention, peacekeeping, mitigating humanitarian emergencies, post-conflict transitions, and economic recovery. Using UN Security Council resolutions and other international mechanisms, we will introduce students to the international normative framework underpinning the WPS agenda. The course will also take a critical look at the implementation of the WPS Agenda to identify gaps and challenges and to develop comprehensive, realistic, and effective response
