We are a group of scholar - educators who engage in researching how 'gender makes the world go round'. In order to do this, we reach beyond traditional IR to a wide variety of disciplines, including Sociology, Politics, Women's Gender Studies, Masculinity Studies, Queer Theory, Cultural Studies and Development Studies, while still maintaining our grounding in IR and global politics. Our members also work in policy-related areas, such as human rights, maternity legislation in Europe, and links between UN peacekeepers and the spread of HIV/AIDS.
The group organises one-day workshops and is active in putting together panels for UK and international conferences in order to ensure that the programmes reflect our concern with gender matters in global politics.
