Women And War In The Middle East: Transnational Perspectives

Women and War in the Middle East critically examines how the experiences of women in conflict and post-conflict situations are shaped by the interactions between groups such as women’s movements, diaspora communities, national governments, non-governmental actors and multilateral bodies. Contributions focus on Iraq and the Occupied Palestinian Territories and are based entirely on original empirical research.

Issues addressed include the impact of gender mainstreaming measures; the consequences for gender relations and identities of the US-led invasion and occupation of Iraq; and how transnational feminist movements can most effectively support peace building and women’s rights in the region.

The book brings together some of the foremost scholars in the areas of feminist international relations, feminist international political economy, anthropology, sociology, history and Middle East studies.
