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, I study whether the level of gender equality affect the success rate of resistance campaigns and ask in what way this effect differs between that of violent and non-violent campaigns. I thus aim to examine aspects of the gendered dynamics of political violence and civil resistance.
