Launch of new online repository of interview material examining the relationship between women and US foreign policy
The Women and US Foreign Policy Interview Project at the Institute for the Study of the Americas promotes and facilitates research into US and gender politics by creating and sustaining an online repository of interview data relating to the multidimensional relationship between US foreign policy (USFP) and women. With the questions being informed by you, the community, the project becomes a repository of your research data. To participate please go to the forum section on the website.
The increase in the number and rank of elite women in the US government is mirrored by an explicit gender agenda within US foreign policy, which aims to promote women’s rights. This resource will provide detail into this gender concerned foreign policy by questioning the people involved. To add a further dimension to the relationship between foreign policy and women this project also examines how USFP, and in particular regime change and democratisation, has directly impacted the lives of women in affected states. This examination is achieved by asking these women their experiences of USFP.
