The CIDP Gender Lab

The Gender Lab is a division of the CIDP that provides first-class research and analysis on topics related to gender and defence studies. Our team is currently working on multiple projects which examine the intersection of gender and security, with a primary focus on Gender in the Candian Armed Forces. The Gender Lab focuses on lived experiences of servicemembers to influence policy and pulls on mixed methods and multidisciplinary approaches to ground impactful analysis. 

At the Gender Lab, we ask:  

  • What are the real impacts of gender integration in militaries?  
  • How does gender manifest in conflict and security scenarios?  
  • How might we use these understandings to inform practice?
