About the Event
UNSCR1325 was the first UN Security Council resolution to draw attention to women and girls during conflict, as well as the first to consider gendered experiences of war. Yet those vulnerable to insecurity and violence because of their sexual orientation or gender identity remain largely neglected by the international peace and security community. While much has been accomplished by WPS projects, there is an alarming lack of attention to how homophobic and transphobic violence targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals occurs in conflict-related environments. The seminar will reflect on these silences and their implications, as well as discuss practical proposals for including sexual orientation and gender identity in WPS work.
Dr Jamie Hagen is Lecturer in International Relations, QUB and Co-Director of the QUB Centre for Gender in Politics. Dr Hagen researches LGBTQ inclusion in Women, Peace and Security practices, as well as queer analysis of security studies more broadly.
This event is part of the Ulster University Transitional Justice Institute WPS@20 seminar series to mark the upcoming 20th anniversary of the adoption the Resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security by the United Nations Security Council. The Transitional Justice Institute is pleased to host this seminar in association with the QUB Centre for Gender in Politics, https://www.qub.ac.uk/research-centres/centre-for-gender-in-politics/.
