In Gendering the International, the contributors explore the different ways of analyzing gender in international studies beyond
the state-centric perspective of International Relations (IR). They demonstrate that it is possible to think about 'the international'
beyond the traditional framework of IR. They contend IR is a set of gendered practices, by critically examining ways in which
gender discourses are deployed in the analyses of 'the international'. Furthermore, they reflect on the interactions between
gender and globalizing forces in a post-colonial environment.
