In this intervention, I consider if, and how, the Russia-Ukraine War is changing NATO’s understanding of a gender perspective. In so doing, I argue a gender perspective is essential for NATO to deploy in not only understanding, but also responding to Russia’s aggression and supporting Ukraine. It builds on over a decade of research focused on NATO's engagement with Women, Peace and Security and with a gender perspective, through which I have seen first-hand how NATO’s understanding of a gender perspective has evolved with the Alliance’s priorities and as broader geopolitical realities have shifted.In light of the new NATO Strategic Concept adopted in 2022 in Madrid and which prioritises Women, Peace and Security for the first time and reinforces gender equality as a NATO value, there is an opportunity for NATO to fully deploy a gender perspective, including in its response to the Russia-Ukraine war (Morais, Turner and Wright, 2022).
