Gender

Boston Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights
http://genderandsecurity.umb.edu/intern.htm
The Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights was founded in 2002 with the goal of integrating the study of gender and of women into work on human rights, security, and armed conflict. Scholars from five leading academic centers and programs in the Boston area came together with the purpose of "changing the political and academic understanding of the security field so that the dynamics of gender become salient at all points in the conflict process, from prevention through post-conflict reconstruction."
