Gender Matters in Global Politics is a comprehensive textbook for advanced undergraduates studying feminism & international relations, gender and global politics and similar courses. It provides students with an accessible but in-depth account of the most significant theories, methodologies, debates and issues.

This textbook is written by an international line-up of established and emerging scholars from a range of theoretical perspectives, providing students with provocative and cutting-edge insights into the study and practices of (how) gender matters in global politics.

Key features and benefits of the book:

  • Explains the insights of feminist theory for a range of other disciplines including international relations, international political economy and security studies.

  • Addresses a large number of key contemporary issues such as human rights, trafficking, rape as a tool of war, peacekeeping and state-building, terrorism and environmental politics.

  • Features extensive pedagogy to facilitate learning — seminar exercises, text boxes, photographs, suggestions for further reading, web resources and a glossary of key terms.
