Bibliographic Resources

The goal of the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights’ Bibliographic Resources Project is to provide the policy, activist and scholarly communities with access to the findings of the burgeoning academic research in this field. We hope that by providing easier access to the findings of scholarly research, we can:

  • help foster better-informed policymaking;
  • support and inform women activists and NGOs;
  • support innovative research by providing resources for researchers in conflict-afflicted areas who often lack access to the kinds of scholarly resources readily available in well-funded educational institutions.

Some of our bibliographies address topics that are currently at the center of international policy agendas and civil society concern, such as “conflict-related sexual violence”; others attempt to help move the “gender, peace and security” agenda forward by focusing on more cutting-edge topics we think worthy of increased attention, such as feminist analysis of the political-economic dimensions of peacebuilding.

If you are familiar with resources which you think should be included in one of our bibliographic resources, please submit the citation, or, better yet, an annotation, and we will add it to the bibliography, with your name as reviewer.


The power of art is critical because it can push the boundaries of experience for which there might not yet be language; as Angela Davis has said, “Artists, whether they be musicians or visual artists or literary artists, are often our beacon in times of struggle. Art can educate the imagination.” This quality of art enables potent challenges to western, masculinist, colonial epistemology. In this bibliography, the Consortium includes research on artists grappling with gender, conflict and human rights violations, as well as coloniality and postcoloniality, Orientalism and the War on Terror, and feminist activist performance art.
Coloniality/Post-Coloniality, Conflict, Terrorism

This bibliography was created as part of the Consortium's Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace (FRSP) project. Given that climate disruption’s effects are already being felt all over the world, it inevitably shapes the context in which the attempt to build sustainable peace takes place, and so any theorizing about how to build and sustain peace must take it into account.

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created this Annotated Bibliography for the Women’s Regional Network (WRN).  WRN aims to provide an opportunity for key women leaders in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to unify efforts across borders and to build a common vision to address issues they face in trying to secure peace and stability in the region. The Network is especially concerned with the inter-linkages between security, extremisms, corruption and militarization, including the militarization of aid and development as they impact women’s lives.  WRN commissioned this annotated bibliography, which maps recent studies, reports and other materials on these topics, in order to enable WRN members and partners to become familiar with the current discourse and evidence related to these themes.
Armed Conflict, Corruption, Economies, Gender-Based Violence, Governance, Humanitarian Assistance, Justice, Militarization, Nationalism, Rights, Women's Rights, Security, Human Security, Security Sector Reform, Sexual Violence, Weapons /Arms

This bibliography was created as part of the Consortium’s Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace (FRSP) project. The bibliography surveys the existing research; the Consortium aims to build upon this literature as we explore the ways that a gendered approach to public finance can strengthen politically, socially and environmentally sustainable peacebuilding.
