Through the S-CAR field at George Mason University, the CGC is dedicated to creating an environment where the community recognizes the need for understanding and addressing gender and conflict through peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction practices. We are comprised of researchers, students, practitioners and professionals that serve as a link between the academy and practice. The CGC focuses through three main scopes: Research, Theory and Practice; through these frameworks, we aim to educate future practitioners on modern peacebuilding tactics and conflict handling within gender studies while creating an open space for critical reflection. Through this blog we hope to provide a safe space for thought-provoking pieces in order to keep our community active and committed to change.
Who are we?
Hello and welcome! I am immensely excited to be part of the CGC and community of practitioners ready to tackle the difficult questions of gender dynamics in conflict. I value a human-centered focus in practice, and constantly want to expand and evolve my understandings and conceptions. Internationally born and bred, I love travel, language and culture, and embrace diversity in every step of life. I am looking forward to contributing to the field and creating a lasting relationship with my intellectual colleagues.
Greetings! I am looking forward to this opportunity to learn about gender issues within a conflict analysis perspective and to share moments of personal awe and admiration throughout my experience at the CGC with you! Humanitarianism is very important to me and I am seeking to obtain an education through multiple academic lenses that will help me give back to the community that has shaped me.
