  • Queering Women, Peace and Security

    This research project considers how the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda can better include LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer) voices in gender, peace and security initiatives. This work bridges academic, activist and policy approaches to include a gender perspective in peace and security responses in conflict-related environments.
