The chapter focuses on the emerging disengagement between Feminist Security Studies (FSS) and Feminist (International) Political Economy F(I)PE and how to address it. As feminist IR grew in diversity, ‘camp’ politics emerged and fractured the initial integration of early feminist scholarship. The author identifies three areas of feminist self-reflection (the basics) from where re-engagement can be spearheaded, namely, positionality (from where we speak), the subject matter we speak of and context-sensitivity (for whom we speak). The first area relates to reconsidering the outsider status of FSS and F(I)PE in relation to mainstream IR and security studies, instead seeing them as insiders located at the intersection of interdisciplines that share a decolonial agenda. The second area concerns a re-exploration of shared subject matter, foregrounding both gendered discursive constructions of forms of violence and the materialities of economic insecurity and structural violence. The last area addresses knowledge politics and what feminist security and political economy scholars can learn from postcolonial feminists’ engagement with context.
