Research overview

Examining the Gendered Impact(s) of Maritime Insecurity and Covid-19 in the Gulf of Guinea

I currently lead a research team exploring the gendered dimensions of maritime (in)security in the Gulf of Guinea (GOG) and in light of the effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic across the region’s maritime domain and security. This project responds to research and knowledge gaps around the gendered construction and experiences of maritime security. It aims to generate a multi-level understanding of the gendered dimensions of maritime insecurity in the GoG. This research explores gender considerations in relation to the region’s maritime security architecture and unpacks the gendered implications of the current Covid-19 pandemic on experiences of maritime insecurity and ocean optimism across the GoG.
