About the Series

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:

  1. Research monographs that capture outstanding scholar contributions
  2. Reference handbooks and companions for the research community as well as tailored-made textbooks for undergraduates and graduates students
  3. Edited volumes which gather the growing participation in research networks and research-focused activities
  4. Research Methods contributions in Comparative Gender Politics that will attract faculty, scholars and students alike.
