Politics and Gender

Course Material 2020/21

Human security, liberty, political voice, economic status, education, health, freedom of expression, access to markets and public spaces as well as institutional behaviour are all fundamentally shaped by gender. This paper aims to introduce students to the various ways in which different understandings of gender impact on contemporary political debates.  Lectures will be structured by six themes: Political Representation, Rights, Inequality, Conflict and Violence, Social Movements and Radical Politics and finally Power and the Body.
