Summary "This book explores the key role of gender in peace research, conflict resolution and international politics. Rather than simply 'add gender' the aim is to transcend different disciplinary boundaries and conceptual approaches to provide a more integrated basis for future study. To this end it uniquely combines theoretical chapters alongside empirical case studies to demonstrate the importance of a gender perspective to both theory and practice in conflict resolution and peace research." "Gender, Peace and Conflict will provide a valuable survey and new insights to a central area of contemporary research. It will be for academics, students and practitioners across peace studies, conflict resolution and international politics."--BOOK JACKET
