This conference will explore the relationship between gender, conflict, violence, war, peace and discuss the relationship of policy, practice and research from multi-dimensional perspectives.

Therefore, our conference aims to call attention to the way conflicts and wars escalate the cycle of gender based violence, reproduction and reinforcement of existing hierarchies during wars and explore gendered human equality in war and peacebuilding, gender rules and roles in war, gender perspective during conflicts and post-conflict contexts, gendered implications of displacement and peace, and last but not least, the role of women in the prevention and resolution of conflicts in peacemaking and peacebuilding.The conference will be held over three days at the Eastern Mediterranean University Conference and Culture Center and will explore the following themes:

  • Gender relations, conflict, violence, war and peacebuilding
  • Gender rules and roles in war and peacebuilding
  • Stereotyped gender identities in war and peacebuilding
  • Domestic violence in war and peacebuilding
  • Gender based violence and  prosecution
  • Wartime rape and the reproduction and reinforcement of existing hierarchies
  • Truth commissions
  • UNSC Resolution 1325 and peacebuilding
  • Women’s narratives in war and peacebuilding
  • Empowerment of women for peacebuilding
  • National and international laws and peacebuilding
  • Gender discrimination, migration and refugees
  • Migrant smuggling and human trafficking
  • Geography of war and peace
  • Education and peacebuilding
  • Contemporary issues in feminism
  • New perspective in gender studies

Due to the international nature of the conference only abstracts written in English will be accepted for review. However presenters can choose to present their papers in English or Turkish.

Submissions are subject to blind peer review at every stage.  Papers without gender perspective will be rejected.
Abstracts and papers will be accessible to all participants on the conference website once the complete program is set.

Conference – Defense industry – Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, December 16th 2015

Josselin Droff December 3, 2015 Tags: , , , News No comments

International aspects of defense economics have been rarely analyzed. In France, if the concept of strategic autonomy remains central in the defense policy, the budgetary constraint, conflicts, threats around the world and the industrial competition require an investigation of international aspects of defense policy.

This conference focuses on these aspects by discussing both the origins of arms transfers and the industrial consequences of the supply chain internationalization. Invited experts will provide their experience in their respective field.

International conference “Borders, Walls and Violence: Costs and Alternatives to Border Fencing” – Call for papers

Josselin Droff September 17, 2015 Tags: , , News No comments

As every other year, the Raoul Dandurand Chair at the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) will organize its leading conference on border security in May 2016. Paper proposals are welcome until October 5th, 2015. This conference promotes a multidisciplinary approach and it gathers academics as well practitioners and NGOs.

This conference seeks to understand border walls as a global trend. As a growing number of walls are being built along international borders and as migrants and inhabitants of those borderlands are experimenting more and more violence, we seek to understand the local perspectives and views on border fences and replace it in a multiscalar perspectives in order to see if there are viable alternatives to fences and security approaches.

Participants are encouraged to critically examine the role of border walls in security discourses and in the framing of the local political and sociological landscape to consider some of the following themes:

  1. Impacts of border walls
  2. Legal aspects of border walls
  3. Costs and economies of border walls
  4. Violence of border walls
  5. Alternatives to border walls

As the call fo papers is now closed, it is very likely that the 19th International Conference on Economics and Security (ICES) will be a tremendous event, once again.
In this year’s edition the organization committee accepted 56 papers, covering several topics in defense and security economics : terrorism, arms industry, conflicts, military spending or arms exports among others. A huge scope of topics for the first edition in France.
As experienced through previous editions, ICES takes place in Europe but it welcomes researchers and practicioners from all around the world. The 19th ICES will benefit from contributions from 20 countries with speakers coming from many European countries but also from Africa, North America, South America and Asia.
Do not hesitate to come and join us to participate to innovative and stimulating debates in the field of defence studies. Registration is open and we hope to welcome you in Grenoble soon!
