Research interests

Political, sexual and gender-based violence; armed conflict; social transformations in war; civil society; UNSCR 1325 and Women, Peace and Security framework; gender; women's rights

With funding from the Swedish Research Council, I am carrying out a three-year, mixed-methods project examining domestic and global backlash against women civil society actors in post-conflict settings. Part of the project will focus on Colombia, combining sub-national statistical analysis and interviews.

This research extends my PhD dissertation (2019), which examined responses to conflict-related sexual violence, with a dual focus on women’s civil society mobilization and the implementation of the global Women, Peace and Security framework.

My research combines statistical analysis, qualitative interviewing and fieldwork, and survey experiments. I have published in the Journal of Peace Research, the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Comparative Political Studies, International Affairs and International Peacekeeping
