In 2014, we were awarded a Minerva Initiative grant from the US Department of Defense to investigate empirically the relationship between the security of women and the security of states. This presentation will lay out our theoretical framework, describe our data collection and scaling efforts, and present our preliminary (i.e., bivariate) findings.

Valerie M. Hudson is Professor and George H.W. Bush Chair at The Bush School of Government and Public Service, Texas A&M University, where she directs the Program on Women, Peace, and Security. She is currently a Fulbright Distinguished Chair at ANU, housed in the Department of International Relations.
