Presentación

This programme interrogates gender in global politics and global governance. The emphasis throughout is critical reflection on the relationship between theory and practice. Students will acquire extensive knowledge of how gender is interrogated within the academic discipline of International Relations and how this is, in turn, related to concrete institutions and institutionalised practices at the global, regional, national and local level, including specialist agencies with a remit to promote gender equality and women’s human rights and gender mainstreaming practices.

The course also covers academic discourse on non-governmental organisations, transnational activist networks and social movements, in relation to the practices, politics, political strategies and advocacy work of a broad range of civil society actors.

Salidas profesionales

This programme will act as a foundation for an academic career in the same way as any other taught postgraduate programme. However, there is a range of national and international organisations (both government and non-governmental) that have dedicated gender advisory units and this MA would significantly enhance the application of a candidate to any of these institutions. These include, but are not limited to: Oxfam, International Alert, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Department for International Development, Amnesty International, the United Nations, the World Bank Group, the International Committee of the Red Cross.
