The UN’s Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda is widely recognized as the most significant and far-reaching global framework for advancing gender equality in military affairs, conflict resolution, and security governance. This book brings together scholars from a range of fields, as well as policymakers and activists, to explore the new directions that are currently emerging for the WPS agenda. These include the role of WPS in work to counter violent extremism, the invisibility of race and sexuality in WPS discourse and practice, and the engagement of men within and alongside WPS. This edited collection balances analytical imperatives common to WPS and other areas of feminist research alongside specially commissioned personal narratives and accounts from those working on issues related to WPS policy and practice.
