(p.3) Introduction
Gender, Sex, and the Postnational Defense

Annica Kronsell

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents the main research questions of the book: whether and how the broader recognition of human security, and in particular gender and security, has influenced the way that the defense and military is organized; and to what extent have gender relations been transformed in this post-national security and defense context? The meaning and relevance of the concept post-national defense is discussed and the case studies — Sweden and the EU, are presented and motivated. The chapter outlines the feminist constructivist institutional approach employed in the analysis. The book ties into theoretical literature in feminist and masculinity studies, feminist IR scholarship as well as other relevant IR literature and introduces some important concepts. Finally, it presents and describes the material used and outlines the contents of each chapter.

Keywords:   feminism, institutionalism, constructivism, gender, military organization
