About Me

Dr. Crawford’s research interests include: the political and legal responses to sexual violence in war; human security; ethics in international politics; gender issues related to UN peacekeeping; and the Women, Peace, and Security agenda.

Her book, Defining a Weapon: The International Response to Wartime Sexual Violence (forthcoming 2017), examines how and to what effect advocacy groups and foreign policy decision-makers defined sexual violence as a weapon of war. Dr. Crawford is also involved in a project with James Lebovic and Eric Lawrence exploring public opinion on civilian casualties in US-led military operations. A second book project, Human Security: Theory and Action, co-authored with David Andersen-Rodgers, aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to human security for scholars, students, and practitioners.
