Claire Duncanson is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Edinburgh. Prior to her academic career, she worked for a variety of human rights and international development NGOs, including Amnesty International, Jubilee 2000 and Global Perspective.

Claire’s research interests lie at the intersection of international security, IR theory and gender politics. Her work applies new theoretical insights about feminism, gender, and, in particular, masculinities, to current international issues, such as military interventions, peacebuilding and nuclear proliferation. Her publications include Forces for Good? Military Masculinities and Peacebuilding in Afghanistan and Iraq (Palgrave Macmillan 2013) and Gender and Peacebuilding (Polity 2016).
