Undergraduate Course Code: POL450H1F L0101
Women and Politics
This course has two main purposes: first, to examine critically women's track records as foreign policy decision-makers; and second, to evaluate links between women elites and gender-based activism in global politics. By assessing comparative politics and international relations research, it aims to illuminate not only the significance of gender to the use of force and patterns of international assistance, but also the relevance of organized feminism to decision-making.
