antiMILITARISM: Political and gender dynamics of peace movements (2013)

30 June 2013
Writing between the nihilistic view that violence is inevitable and the utopian belief in the possibility of a violence-free world, Cynthia Cockburn carefully uncovers the movements' many tensions and antagonisms through a gendered lens. This book is the outcome of a two year funded project of research involving a sequence of studies of disparate elements of the anti- war, anti- militarist and peace movement viewed as a worldwide phenomenon. The work of IANSA, in particular that of members in Uganda, is the focus of the final case study, presented in Chapter 8 with focus on the IANSA Women’s Network.
