50/50 Gender Submission Challenge for International Affairs


30 Sep abstract-1278077_1920 Part of New Voices in Global Security

Chair: Dr Amanda Chisholm

Speaker: Professor Andrew Dorman



Do women publish less journal articles than men? This is a question has been posed in numerous studies across various academic disciplines and countries. The answer is overwhelming yes. More sticky questions that has underpinned emerging commentary within academic circles is why does this gap exist, how does this gap impact on our knowledge around war, conflict, security and international relations, how might including more female authors and indeed more diverse perspectives impact what we know about global politics most broadly?

These questions are taken seriously by the International Affairs journal in their commitment for a 50/50 gender equality goal in published articles. Join us as we talk to Prof Andrew Dorman, editor of International Affairs as he talks through why IA’s gender equality challenge is important and what journals can do to address this gender gap.



Professor Dorman trained as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG, qualifying in 1990 before returning to academia. He has previously taught at the University of Birmingham, where he completed his masters and doctoral degrees, and the Royal Naval College Greenwich. He is currently the editor of International Affairs, the Chatham House journal published by Oxford University Press and a Research Associate at the University of Pretoria.

His research focuses on the interaction of policy and strategy, utilising the case studies of British defence and security policy and European Security. He has held grants with the ESRC, British Academy, Leverhulme Trust, Ministry of Defence and US Army War College.
