All Campuses will now be closed for teaching and social activities

Following the clear imperative in the latest government advice to avoid all non-essential contact with others and avoid unnecessary travel, the decision has been made to suspend all teaching and social activities on campus and to close all libraries, sports facilities, theatres, catering facilities and cancel events.

We have further advice and guidance for our staff and students on our Covid-19 Corona Virus site

UNSCR1325 was the first UN Security Council resolution to draw attention to women and girls during conflict, as well as the first to consider gendered experiences of war.

Queering through Collaboration: Connecting LGBTQ and WPS Networks

TJI

UNSCR1325 was the first UN Security Council resolution to draw attention to women and girls during conflict, as well as the first to consider gendered experiences of war.

Yet those vulnerable to insecurity and violence because of their sexual orientation or gender identity remain largely neglected by the international peace and security community. While much has been accomplished by WPS projects, there is an alarming lack of attention to how homophobic and transphobic violence targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals occurs in conflict-related environments. The seminar will reflect on these silences and their implications, as well as discuss practical proposals for including sexual orientation and gender identity in WPS work.

Dr Jamie Hagen is Lecturer in International Relations, QUB and Co-Director of the QUB Centre for Gender in Politics. Dr Hagen researches LGBTQ inclusion in Women, Peace and Security practices, as well as queer analysis of security studies more broadly.

Venue and Time: Boardroom, BA-03-019, Ulster University Belfast Campus, 12 – 1.30pm, February 12, 2020

The seminar is being hosted in association with QUB Centre for Gender in Politics.
