What Can Applying a Gender Lens Contribute to Conflict Studies? A review of selected MICROCON1 working papers

Colette Harris ()

No 41, Research Working Papers from MICROCON - A Micro Level Analysis of Violent Conflict

Abstract: It is rare to find gender a specific focus of scholarship on conflict studies. In MICROCON we have tried to place gender in a central position within all projects and to convince all researchers to use a gender lens for their analysis. This paper uses a set of MICROCON working papers to illustrate how gender can be used at different conceptual levels in conflict analysis, and aims to show what can be gained by the use of a gender lens. The papers bear out Enloe’s insistence that those seeking an in-depth understanding of the social and political world require a feminist curiosity – that is, a curiosity about the roles gender categories play in political debate and action, as well as in scholarship.
