This Gender and Conflict course from SOAS University of London offers insight into key issues in the study of gender and conflict, interrogating Security Council resolutions on women, peace and security, including conflict-related sexual violence, while also analysing transnational feminist approaches beyond the resolutions.   


The Gender and Conflict course from SOAS University of London provides a focus for students interested in feminism and masculinity studies, sexuality and gender, alongside the tools to use gender analysis in the study of peacebuilding and peacekeeping, post-conflict initiatives, security and armed conflict.

The module uses interdisciplinary materials and research to examine the various dimensions of gender and conflict, in terms of the experiences of gendered subjects, as well as the legal and political frameworks that operate in conflict settings. Students will develop a nuanced understanding of various approaches to gender and sexuality and apply these to key issues across the spectrum of conflict. 

What will I learn? 

On successful completion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Understand and explain the relevance theories on gender and sexuality to the study of conflict and security
  • Be able to discuss and analyse the different roles women take up during armed conflicts and how these have different meanings within different cultural contexts
  • Be aware of the international legal framework on women, peace and security
  • To develop an understanding of feminist theories on peace and war, including contemporary understanding of gender diversity and transgendered subjects, male victims and the need for intersectional approaches to a feminist peace project
