Tell us about your work on WPS

My research focuses on the implementation of the WPS agenda in the post-Soviet space. I am interested to see how the agenda is perceived, understood, contested, and translated at the local level in militarized and postsocialist contexts.

Who do you admire in the WPS field?

People who have a truly holistic (yet strategic) vision of the agenda and seek to bridge and create coalitions between the academic, activist, and policy worlds.

What have you read recently that you would like to recommend to Network members?

“Borderlands in European Gender Studies. Beyond the East-West Frontier” edited by Teresa Kulawik and Zhanna Kravchenko

What is your dream for the WPS agenda?

Feminist peace and disarmament!
