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.

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created this bibliography to provide a guide to the landscape of gendered research on the disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration process in Colombia, including both Spanish and English language sources. Our goal is to provide the policy, activist and scholarly communities with improved access to the findings of academic research, as well as to a curated selection of the extensive resources produced by NGOs, policy agencies and international organizations.Topics addressed in this bibliography include: the gender dimensions of DDR for Colombian guerillas and paramilitaries; the relationship between gender, DDR and Transitional Justice; masculinities in a DDR context; the impact of DDR on women’s security; and the DDR process for female ex- combatants.

The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights created this bibliography to provide a guide to the landscape of academic literature on ecofeminism, although there is also a brief final section of non-academic sources. This bibliography includes foundational texts in the field, critical discourse on the field, and exploration of fields in conversation with ecofeminism, including: ecological feminism; feminist environmentalism; critical ecological feminism; critical feminist eco-socialism; gender and the environment; queer ecologies; global feminist environmental justice; and ecowomanism, which “centers the perspectives of women of African descent and reflects upon these women's activist methods, religious practices, and theories on how to engage earth justice. As a part of the womanist tradition, methodologically ecowomanism features race, class, gender intersectional analysis to examine environmental injustice around the planet” (Harris 2016). With a few exceptions, this bibliography does not cover ecofeminist literary criticism, nor does it cover the ecofeminist animal rights discourse. The Consortium has produced a separate bibliography on the interrelated fields of Feminist Political Ecology and Feminist Ecological Economics.

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.

This bibliography was created as part of the Consortium’s Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace (FRSP) project.
