International Women’s Day 2016 Event:
Gender, Violence and Conflict Seminar
March 8th, 2016
4:30-6:00
TRISS Seminar Room, Room C6.002, Arts Building, Trinity College DublinThe Gender Study Group of the Development Studies Association of Ireland and the Trinity International Development Initiative (TIDI) are hosting a seminar on Gender, Violence and Conflict to mark International Women’s Day 2016.

The role of gender and gender-based violence in contexts of conflict and instability is often examined in a limited way, for instance only in relation to sexual violence perpetrated by armed forces or the impact of the forced migration of women and children. Yet, the role of gender is significantly more complex, and more important, in understanding causes and consequences of conflict and in transitions to peace. In this seminar we bring together researchers working on issues of gender and conflict in varied development contexts, from Northern Ireland to Kenya to Mexico. The seminar will examine issues including, the role of violent masculinities in shaping conflicts and instability, gender and state violence, and gender identities and dynamics within peace-building and post-conflict development.

Speakers:
Dr. Catherine O’Rourke, Transitional Justice Institute, University of Ulster
Dr. Caroline Munyi, The Confederal School of Religions, Peace Studies and Theology
Trinity College, Dublin
Dr. Theresa O’Keefe, Equality Studies Centre, UCD, Dublin
