Women in international security: Theory and practice

This 10-part seminar series runs over four semesters at the Australian National University (ANU) in 2018-19, and is sponsered by the ANU Gender Institute and the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre.

​The series aims to promote gender equity by helping to ‘normalize’ the role of women in international security, through exposing key ANU audiences regularly to some of the leading scholars and practitioners in international security, who are high-achieving women. 

Our events take three forms: (1) research seminars presenting ongoing research on international security issues; (2) policy dialogues with policy-makers on contemporary security themes; and (3) postgraduate career opportunity and development workshops. Speakers include distinguished women scholars from ANU and other universities in Australia; leading women policy-makers and politicians; fast-rising women in different sectors of the Australian armed forces; and successful women at different career stages in the private security sector and in government agencies dealing with defence, foreign policy and strategy.
