For 2019 entry, LSE is offering a prestigious LSE PhD Studentship for a doctoral project that addresses gender, justice and security in conflict-affected societies.
Students will be members of the LSE Department of International Relations or Department of Gender Studies and affiliated with the Centre for Women, Peace and Security.
Proposed PhD topics may cover any aspect of gendered justice or security in conflict-affected societies, broadly understood. There is no requirement that PhD projects involve national case studies, but any projects that do have an empirical focus will be expected to include at least one of the following countries: Afghanistan, Colombia, Iraq, Lebanon, Myanmar, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, or Uganda. Projects which take international organisations, international law and international policy frameworks as their focus are also welcomed, provided that this is in relation to gender, justice and security in conflict-affected societies.
For further information on about this studentship, deadlines and details on how to make an application please visit our website.
The LSE PhD Studentship in Gender, Justice and Security is tenable for up to four years, subject to passing departmental progress reviews, and covers full fees and an annual stipend of £18,000.
