Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

48 Scopus citations


The purpose of this narrative is to build a bridge among feminist and traditional worldviews within international relations (IR) scholarship. In particular, this essay renews Ann Tickner's appeal for dialogue between feminist and conventional IR scholars. Not only is there room for such dialogue, but it is necessary. The most dogmatic scholars from each worldview generate and perpetuate an artificial divide. The purpose of this essay is to provide an explanation and rationale for a small, but growing, body of research that incorporates elements of gender and social justice into conventional IR theory using various methodologies, including a quantitative approach.
