POL 563A - Gender as a Component of International Security

This course charts the progress of the recognition that gender is an important part of any discourse about security.  A brief historical overview will set the context for rape as a weapon of war and attempts to mitigate this historical fact. One focus of the course is on the U.N. Tribunals. The second focus is on the effect of gender equality on human security, economic prosperity, and national stability.
