Course content

This unique, multidisciplinary programme is concerned with the ways in which women and gender are 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, with affiliation to the Centre for Women Peace and Security, you will fully participate in the academic and social life of the Department and also benefit from the Centre's cross-sectoral community of researchers, activists and practitioners from around the world. In addition to your academic programme, you will benefit from guest practitioner seminars, workshops and classes led by experts in the field – Visiting Fellows and Professors, Activists in Residence and other members of the Centre, as well as by faculty from other departments at LSE. The programme will make use of empirical material and case studies that are national and transnational in scope, and will incorporate interdisciplinary texts and perspectives from theory, policy, and practice.

This programme will be suitable for mid-career professionals working in conflict and post-conflict settings; in humanitarian assistance; UN field offices; and peace governance roles. It will also be suitable for early-career students who would like to work in the field, in any number of roles.
