Tickner focuses her distinctively feminist approach on new issues of the international relations agenda since the end of the Cold War, such as ethnic conflict and other new security issues, globalizations, democratization, and human rights.


While the field of international relations remains dominated by men, and its curriculum still lacks serious attention to gender issues, political events of the past decade have set in motion a transformation in which challenges to the field's "scientific" foundations are making room for new, feminist approaches. Tickner (U. of Southern California) both celebrates feminist work in international relations in the 1990s and also explores the profound changes in the discipline made possible by the end of the Cold War<-->away from an overriding emphasis on military-security issues and toward cultural and economic issues.
