Abstract

This panel examines how gender relations are constituted as well as experienced in relation to global/macroeconomic structures, including financial restructuring, development and peacebuilding, transitions, securitisation and militarisation. It explores violence and violations in state and non-state armed conflict, post-conflict zones and during peacekeeping/building missions; the increased trade with women’s bodies, and the growth of a sex trade around the creation of free trade zones and military sites. The panel welcome papers examining multiple forms of direct violence in conflict, post-conflict and transitional spaces, and papers on more indirect and structural forms of violence and violations, such as the relationship between women’s (lack of/poor) access to productive resources such as land, property, and income and the risk of being subjected to gender-based violence, and/or other critical accounts examining the gendered nature of crisis, conflict and violence in relation to broader global processes.
