Master; Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton IDS Research on gender goes beyond the narrow confines of many development projects, taking on issues such as political economy and conflict that have strong implications for development policy. Our groundbreaking work pushes the boundaries on many development projects and challenges normative ideas about gender with more nuanced, fluid perspectives on femininity masculinity women and men and the way they interact. This programme is one of the longest running and most popular programmes on gender and development. It brings together experts from a range of academic disciplines and policy experiences with extensive knowledge in research, consultancy and operational work across a range of social science disciplines.
This programme will give you in-depth knowledge and capacity for gender analysis of specific themes, such as reproductive health, rights, identity, environment and social protection; and the tools required to participate effectively in gender and development-related research, policy-making, and implementation. The programme is taught jointly by IDS and the School of Global Studies which is home to some of the world's leading thinkers on gender and development.
The programme provides a thorough grounding in policy and planning skills.
