This chapter maps contemporary debates in Feminist Security Studies (FSS) in Europe to show the variety of issues studied via different theoretical and methodological feminist lens. We celebrate the richness of contemporary FSS debates, but at the same time highlight the asymmetry in knowledge production across the continent. FSS is clearly dominated by academics from Western and Northern Europe who are based in globally recognised ‘Centers of Excellence’. Our mapping thus focuses on scholarship in both Western and Northern Europe as well as Central, Eastern, Southern and South-eastern Europe. We highlight some of the obstacles scholars outside of the ‘West’ face when engaging with the discipline and call for more inclusive transnational FSS debate in Europe.
