7-week session | CRN 33510

This course examines the increasingly recognized role of women in global peace and security affairs, as demonstrated by the groundbreaking UN Resolution 1325 (2000), the first-ever US State Department Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security, and the lifting of the US ban on women in combat roles (2015). From politics to the military, education, nongovernmental organizations, the private sector, and grass roots organizations, women are involved in conflict prevention and peace building. The course examines various perspectives on empowering women to play positive, active roles in these areas.
