Elise Ketelaars currently is a second year PhD Candidate at Ulster University's Transitional Justice Institute. Her project focuses on EU support for women's right within the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy. Her main areas of interest are EU support for gendered transitional justice and the implementation of the Women, Peace and Security agenda. Within this framework she focuses on the question how securitisation in the EU's approach towards the neighbourhood affects its conceptualisation of what entails gender justice and what constitutes gender mainstreaming. The research uses Tunisia and Ukraine as case studies.
