To our knowledge, this is the first attempt ever to bring together scholars from around the world who examine gender in contemporary diplomacy, with a focus on interactions among Foreign Service officials and Ministries of Foreign Affairs. The aim is to establish a research network and create the foundation for a collaborative research agenda on gender and diplomacy.

Anyone with interest in this topic is welcome to attend. Paper presentations are by invitation only.

Gender, Diplomacy and Peace - February 7 2019

At 13:00-17:00
Room: Dragonen, Sprängkullsgatan 19, Gothenburg

Whereas both diplomacy and peace processes used to be virtually all male terrains with little concern for gender issues, diplomatic interactions have recently seen a large influx of women and much more focus on gender justice. In 2018, the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Nadia Murad and Denis Mukwege for their work to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict. We invite you to an afternoon of talks and discussion of these groundbreaking developments.

• What is a feminist foreign policy, and does it work?
• What difference does the entry of women into diplomacy make?
• How do international efforts address sexualized violence in conflict?

Ambassador Ann Bernes from the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs will speak about the experiences of pursuing a feminist foreign policy, and leading researchers on gender, diplomacy and peace from the GenDip Program at the University of Gothenburg, the Center for Gender Research of the University of Oslo and the Centre on Gender, Peace and Security of PRIO (Peace Research Institute in Oslo) will present their latest research findings. Among these researchers, professor Inger Skjelsbæk is a deputy member of the Nobel Committee that selects the annual Nobel Peace Prize.

Ambassador Ann Bernes and Professor Inger Skjelsbæk, University of Oslo.
