London School of Economics and Political Science
Paul Kirby is a Research Fellow with the LSE Centre for Women, Peace and Security, and a Co-Director of the UKRI GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub. His research focuses on the politics of the Women, Peace and Security agenda; the various manifestations of the claim that rape is a ‘weapon of war’; and critical international political theory, especially feminist and gender theory. On the GCRF Hub, Paul is pursuing two projects: one on contemporary feminist security governance and responses to sexual and gender-based violence; and another on efforts to reform or abolish ‘problematic’ strains of masculinity in international politics.
