As a student of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University in Oslo, I am currently writing my Master Thesis in partnership with PRIO. By employing quantitative methods, my thesis aims to investigate the structural elements that promote protest success. Specifically, I look at whether the level of gender equality affects whether protest movements succeed or not and ask in what way this effect differs between that of violent and nonviolent mass mobilization. I thus aim to examine aspects of the gendered dynamics of political violence and civil resistance.
