The comparative research conducted in the field of gender and politics today is more than ever resulting in innovative theory building, applying novel research designs and engaging with mainstream political science. Gender & Politics has moved from the margins of political science to the center. Given the highly critical and activist roots of the gender and politics scholarship, it quasi naturally embraces intersectionality. The Routledge Gender and Comparative Politics Book Series aims to reflect this rich, critical and broad scholarship covering the main political science sub-disciplines with, for instance, gender focused research on political economy, civil society, citizenship, political participation and representation, governance and policy making.
To reflect the diversity in the field, the book series welcomes book proposals such as:
Festivals as Reparative Gender Politics Millennial Feminism in Southeastern Europe
Women, Men, and Elections Policy Supply and Gendered Voting Behaviour in Western Democracies
Making Gender Equality Happen Knowledge, Change and Resistance in EU Gender Mainstreaming
The Gender Politics of Domestic Violence Feminists Engaging the State in Central and Eastern Europe
