Research interests

In the field of peace education/study, I have been looking at the military, militarization and demilitarization from a gender perspective. I have conducted action research on women’s peace movement in Okinawa and have been involved in international peace movements. My current research interests include sexual violence by the US military and introducing gender perspectives into international peace and security policies.

Message to students

My contact with graduate students may be limited as I do not teach many courses, but I hope to help those who are interested in gender perspectives in international relations. Also, I hope to share information and expertise that I gain from my activities in international peace movements or participation in UN conferences.
