Toni Haastrup

Senior Lecturer in International Politics, University of Stirling

Dr Toni Haastrup is a feminist teacher and researcher at the University of Stirling. Her research explores the nature of power hierarchies between the Global North and South in both knowledge making and practice. She has worked on the global governance of security via regional security institutions – the African and European Unions – among others in her monograph Charting Transformation through Security: Contemporary-EU Africa Relations (Palgrave, 2013). A part of her current research agenda draws on critical feminisms including feminist institutionalism, postcolonial and African feminisms, to understand the foreign policy practices of security institutions. She is an Editor-in-Chief of JCMS: Journal of Common Market Studies (2017-2022). In addition, she is on the executive board of Women Also Know Stuff; the Secretary of the British International Studies Association and an Advisory Board Member of Centre for Feminist Foreign Policy.
