The third edition of Jill Steans’ popular and highly respected text offers a comprehensive and up to date introduction to gender in international relations today. Its nine chapters have been fully revised and expanded to cover key issues, developments and debates in the field including:

  • the state and citizenship
  • gender, sexuality and human rights
  • conflict, peace and security
  • narratives and representational practices in international politics
  • global political economy
  • development and gender in global governance

Guiding students competently through complex theoretical and conceptual issues, the book is careful to ground its discussions in contemporary concerns, such as the War on Terror and its legacy, the ‘securitisation’ of human rights, the Arab Spring, the global financial crisis, contemporary challenges to global institutions, and ethical dilemmas that arise in negotiating gender issues and politics in a culturally diverse world. Each chapter features questions for reflection, seminar activities, further reading and web links to highlight key points and provide contemporary illustrations. A glossary of key terms is also included for easy reference.

Gender and International Relations will be essential reading for students and scholars of gender, international relations, global politics and related courses.

Keywords: International Relations, Gender, international relations, security studies, politics, feminism
