How Gender Shapes Security Sector Restraint

Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 11:25am to 12:40pm

Virtual Event

Dr. Sabrina Karim, the Hardis Family Assistant Professor in Government, will present preliminary research from the Gender and Security Sector Lab that she runs at Cornell University. The presentation will focus on how gender equality within the security forces affects personnel’s beliefs and norms about the use of violence as well as how different forms of socialization, such as through participation in United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, affects the same outcomes. The research draws on surveys conducted with the security forces in Ghana, Zambia, Senegal, and Uruguay.

This seminar is part of a series organized by the Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) and the Gender and Security Sector (GSS) Lab.  Download the Fall 2021 Seminar Series schedule here.
