This chapter presents a reflection on feminist politics in the context of militarized violence. It specifically explores the gender implications of globalization, human security, and human rights. It argues that it is crucial to identify the gendered antecedents and consequences of violence, conflict, and war. Processes of globalization do not occur in a uniform way across nation-states, governments, and corporations in the world today. Accountability for violence associated with resource extraction or production is lacking where economic activities transcend international borders. Furthermore, the chapter examines how states manage the protection and provision of basic rights and entitlements for their nationals. Feminist analyses of conflict elucidate the intimate connections between war, political economy, nationalism, and human displacement and their various impacts across scale.

Keywords:   feminist politics, militarized violence, gender, globalization, human security, human rights, war, political economy, nationalism
