The suggested project integrates various feminist achievements to the scholarly field of Peace Research. Feminists with interests in the study of direct violence (e.g. feminist security studies), and structural violence (e.g. feminist approaches to development, global poverty, migration and mobility, and global health/care) will participate in a series of three workshops, organized at the Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI) in Finland, Lund University in Sweden, and University of Tromsø in Norway. The project brings together feminist scholars and practitioners from across the world, so as to establish an international and interdisciplinary network for feminist peace research. Whilst the emphasis is on the Nordic countries, scholars from elsewhere in Europe, the US and the Global South are invited to participate too. The goal is to establish an extensive network, both geographically and in terms of the variety of feminist peace approaches covered.
