Course Title: 0102 Gender and Intersectionality in Peace and Conflict Studies

Course Description

The seminar deals with the current debates on gender and intersectionality in the context of conflicts and peacebuilding processes. The course will address the international legal instruments for combating gender-based violence as well as for the inclusion of women in peacebuilding and decision-making processes. It also implies an analysis of gender-based violence in times of conflict as well as in peace times. This will show how while certain forms of gender-based violence are strongly criticized in the public sphere, others remain invisible, naturalized, and even legitimized by large segments of the population. Throughout the course, the analysis of specific case studies will illustrate the contradictions between the struggle, achievements, and successes of women's movements, on the one hand, and the challenges still pending to eradicate geneder based violence in times of peace and war, on the other. In doing so, the course will address the following questions: what role do gender and intersectionality play in the perpetration of violence in armed conflicts? What gender perspectives do peacebuilding and transitional justice mechanisms incorporate to deal with the  legacyof gender-based violence following dictatorships and armed conflict? Do transitional justice instruments include sufficient intersectional perspectives in the search for truth, justice, and reparations?
