The seminar is organized by Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI) and it is a part of the theme seminar series organized by the Gender Studies Unit, which aims at bringing together scholars, teachers and students interested in similar issues.

The seminar is built around doctor Marsha Henry’s (London School of Economics, Gender Institute) visit to the University of Tampere.
