Is Feminist Peace within Reach?

The Hall

A lunch talk with the guest of the program "Black Feminism and the Polycrisis" Toni Haastrup.

Across the continent, African people are grappling with a range of insecurities, many the result of active conflicts and war. Despite time and resources invested, these insecurities continue to resist available interventions risking the ambitions articulated in AU-Agenda 2063.
With this in mind, Toni Haastrup suggests a a pan-African feminist-informed approach to tackling security challenges in Africa. A pan-African feminist-informed approach to insecurity is a radical proposition that prioritizes African agency, the transformation of oppressive gender regimes, and collaboration underpinned by social justice and solidarity for peace.


Toni Haastrup is Professor and Chair in Global Politics at the University of Manchester. She earned her PhD in Politics from the University of Edinburgh. With a keen focus on interdisciplinary approaches, Haastrup's research often engages the complexities of global politics, with particular attention to the intersections of gender, race, and power. Her work has not only advanced academic understanding but has also contributed to shaping policy and practice in addressing global challenges.

Beyond her academic work, she is also deeply committed to supporting the next generation of scholars, fostering a diverse and inclusive academic community. She is a founding member of the African Feminist Collective on Feminist Informed Policies (AfIP Collective).
