Today, an integrated interdisciplinary, collaborative, and global approach is needed to map, understand, and intervene in social and political processes. Without taking the gendered nature of phenomena into account, we cannot hope to produce transformative research that questions existing power relations in development and international relations.


Centre for Gender and Global Justice of the Institute of International Relations

The Center for Gender and Global Justice recognizes and ultimately aims to challenge the persistent gender power inequalities that exist in the world. The main objective of our policy and research work is to expose and expand debates on current issues in international relations from an intersectional perspective. Our research focuses on gendered and gendering approaches a variety of topics and specializations:

  • justice and equality,
  • peace and security,
  • nationhood and statehood,
  • development and humanitarian aid,
  • democratic transitions,
  • political thought and international studies.

The Center for Gender and Global Justice conducts theoretically-informed and empirically-grounded research and policy analysis on a broad spectrum of approaches to understand gendered justice along with human rights and international development, and to promote awareness of their relevance in political and socio-economic contexts globally. The Center aspires to function as an arena for researchers not only at our own institute, but also to serve as a link to other research communities, both nationally and internationally.
