Invitation to the Thematic Block Discussion "Gender, International Politics and Diplomacy"


November 29, 2013

Because of the rise of gender in these areas, numerous fields of international politics have been reviewed of their gender practices since then. This is also the case with development aid and post-conflict peace-building, the two policy areas in the focus of this talk. While each of these policy areas has its own characteristic features, overarching gender stereotypes and patriarchal attitudes operate in both of them.

We cordially invite you to a thematic block discussion "Gender, international politics and diplomacy" organized by the Institute of International Relations in Prague (Nerudova 3, Praha 1) on December 5, 2013.

In the first block starting at 2pm a lecture "Gender in Development and Post-Conflict Peace-Building" will be delivered by Claudia von Braunmühl (Freie Universität Berlin), followed by an intervention of Běla Plechanovová (Univerzita Karlova) - the full program can be viewed here.

In the second block (16:30 – 18:00) the topic of the debate is "Equality, family and diplomacy. Equal opportunities and harmonization of family life in diplomatic service." (in Czech only) -  the full program can be viewed here.
