Raisina 2018 | Women in Foreign and Security Policy

By Rachel Rizzo

It is a truism that gender plays an unavoidable role in matters of peace and security. Against this backdrop, this conversation reflected on how men and women are differently targeted and affected by conflict situations; the link between gender inequality, politically motivated violence and resultant security politics and conflict resolution mechanisms; why women are underrepresented in leadership positions in academia and policymaking; and what objectives implementing a gender bias serves.
