Routledge Studies in Gender and Global Politics


About the Series

In this series, we aim to publish books that work with, and through, feminist insights on global politics. This series welcomes scholarship on any aspect of global political practices, broadly conceived, that pays attention to the ways in which gender is central to, (re)produced in, and is productive of, such practices. We embrace a broad, intersectional understanding of feminism, politics, and gender, and are open to different theoretical, methodological and disciplinary approaches, including but not limited to queer, decolonial, Indigenous, and posthuman perspectives.

There is growing recognition both within the academy and in global political institutions that gender matters in and to the practices of global politics. From the governance of peace and security, to the provision of funds for development initiatives, and from transnational advocacy networks to justice campaigns, theoretically sophisticated and empirically grounded feminist work has highlighted that these processes have a gendered dimension.

The series aims to be genuinely global in scope. We welcome submissions from scholars in/of the global South. Both monographs and edited volume proposals are welcome. The series is also multi-disciplinary, publishing work from across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences with a global aspect and political focus.
