We considered many different map projections in the preparation of this website, recognising that all projections are partial and political. In addition to the question of projection, we needed to consider the existence of contested boundaries, and even of naming.

In addition, we recognise that boundaries and naming are, in many contexts, implicated in former and ongoing practices of colonial domination. Learn more about land rights, native title, and the dispossession of Indigenous communities:

Gender, Justice and Security Blog

The Gender, Justice, and Security blog is a space for critical dialogue around the six research themes of the Gender, Justice and Security Hub. The blog seeks to make academic and practice-led research and analysis available in an accessible way for a wide readership, explore contemporary issues relating to gender, justice and security and improve public debate.

Law and Policy Frameworks

For both SDGs 5 and 16 and the Women, Peace and Security agenda, successful implementation requires an alignment between global policy frames and centres of authority (such as the UN) and opportunities for change as they exist on the ground. For example, versions of ‘justice’, ‘accountability’, ‘participation’ or ‘protection’ favoured by donors and international agencies…

Livelihood, Land & Rights

In the wake of violent conflict, demands for justice are often framed around accountability for violations of bodily integrity, but there is increasing recognition that ‘transitional’ justice and the WPS agenda should also address social and economic rights. This project identifies key gaps in the understanding of the relationship of these rights to gendered power relations…

Migration and Displacement

This research stream is organised around two premises: first, both conflict-induced displacement (international and internal) and migration in the post-conflict state are highly gendered; and second, the restructuring of the post-conflict state may give rise to competing tensions, including the creation of new opportunities and the exacerbation of ethnic, religious and gender-based divisions which deepen vulnerabilities…

Transformation and Empowerment

The concepts of ‘transformative justice’ and ‘empowerment’ have become increasingly prevalent in literatures on achieving justice and gender equality. However, policies to transform conflict-affected societies by ‘building peace’, empowering populations and ‘dealing with the past’ through transitional justice, justice reform and rule of law promotion are usually poorly aligned with development policies…
