Reflexivity, security, conflict
This chapter will examine reflexivity, with a focus on three cognate disciplines: international relations, security studies, and peace studies. It opens with an account of how reflexivity has become more visible in – and has actively shaped – the study of security and conflict, following spatial openings in the early 1990s within international relations and security studies in particular. This is followed by a brief exposition of how feminist epistemologies have influenced (and continue to influence) the theory and practice of reflexive inquiry. Finally, the chapter will examine how reflexive analyses have been applied via three prominent “turns” in the aforementioned disciplines, namely, the narrative, vernacular, and local turns
