SPP Associate Professor Andrea Krizsan has published a handbook on gender and EU politics at Routledge as co-editor. Edited by Abels, Krizsán, MacRae and van den Vleuten the The Routledge Handbook of Gender and EU Politics maps the expanding field of gender and EU politics, giving an overview of the fundamentals and new directions of the sub- discipline, and serving as a reference book for scholars and students interested in the EU.
In investigating the gendered nature of European integration and gender relations in the EU as a political system, it summarizes and assesses the research on gender and the EU to this point in time, identifies existing research gaps and addresses directions for future research in the field. Contributors from the US, the UK and continental Europe summarize the state of the art in gender and EU studies.
The Handbook comes out from print on 18 March and will be launched by the authors and two distinguished experts, Toni Haastrup (University of Stirling) and Yvonne Galligan (Queens University Belfast).
