EADI (Wo)Mentoring

Pursuing a career in academia can be challenging. Young scholars have to deal with a number of questions: uncertainties concerning research work and juggling career, family commitments and personal life at the same time. The EADI Mentoring Programme “Develop Your Talent” provides young and aspiring scholars with the chance to exchange with someone further advanced in their career. The mentoring does not offer professional coaching to the mentees, but accompaniment on a younger sister/elder sister level. As some of our mentors are also active in the Working Groups opportunities for further collaboration often arise. This is especially important since women in particular are often struggling to find entry points for building own networks

2018/01 – Institute of Development Studies (IDS), Brighton; research paper; Author(s): Sohela Nazneen - Details

This paper is an evidence review of how intersecting forms of inequalities influence women’s political participation and representation at the local level in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. The review shows that while the quota system has increased women’s presence in local government, intersections of gender and caste or gender and class affect minority women’s ability to contest elections, participate in local government meetings, contest opinions, and represent the interests of their community and that of gender equality in different ways. These intersections also make women vulnerable to discriminatory practices within the government and also to violence.

2018/03 – International Labour Organization (ILO); Report - Details

The past 20 years have witnessed some progress for women in the world of work and in terms of gender equality in society. Today, more women than ever before are both educated and participating in the labour market. This “global snapshot” looks at the progress (or lack thereof) made during the past decade and assesses women’s labour market prospects by examining the gaps between men and women according to a selection of ILO statistical indicators, namely labour force participation, unemployment, informal employment and working poverty.

2017/12 – Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP), International Social Science Council (ISSC); Poverty Brief no. 39; Author(s): Sarah Bradshaw, Sylvia Chant, Brian Linneker - Details

In this poverty brief Sarah Bradshaw (Middlesex University), Sylvia Chant (London School of Economics and Political Science) and Brian Linneker (Independent Scholar) debate: What do we think we know, what do we actually know, and what do we need to know about women's poverty, and how does this relate to poverty alleviation programmes? The authors conclude that while a feminised and feminising monetary poverty has been assumed, there is little evidence on which to base this assumption. As such more research is needed on these other dimensions of gendered poverty if anti-poverty programmes are to improve women's wellbeing.
