Gender, Peace and Security
This unique, multidisciplinary programme is concerned with the ways in which gender is understood in relation to, and affected by, regional, national and global peace and security processes in conflict and post-conflict settings. Located in the Department of Gender Studies, you will fully participate in the academic and social life of the Department and also benefit from exposure to LSE’s diverse community of researchers. In addition to your academic study, you will benefit from LSE’s lively public events programme. The MSc will make use of critical gender theory and empirical research that are international and transnational in scope, and will draw on interdisciplinary texts and perspectives from theory, policy, and practice. This programme will be suitable for those who have a professional background in conflict and post-conflict work; in humanitarian assistance; UN field offices; and peace governance roles who wish to further their expertise in gender, peace and security. It will also be suitable for early-career students who would like to work in relevant fields, in any number of roles. It is also a good foundation for pursuing a doctorate in related disciplines and subfields.
