Resisting Militarism - Resisting Militarised Masculinities

Feminist Cynthia Enloe wrote back in 1988: "To omit gender from any explanation how militarization occurs, is not only to risk a flawed political analysis; it is to risk, too, a perpetually unsuccessful campaign to roll back that militarization". But how, then, are militarisation and gender linked? What does this mean for resisting militarisation and transforming gender relations? We want to explore these and other questions in a discussion with:

  • Daniel Conway, author of "Masculinities, Militarisation and the End Conscription Campaign: War Resistance in Apartheid South Africa'"
  • Cynthia Cockburn, feminist anti-war activist and author of several books on gender and militarism. Her latest book is "Antimilitarism: Political and Gender Dynamics of Peace Movements"
  • Andreas Speck, War Resisters' International Right to Refuse to Kill programme worker
