02 Nov 2018

Call for participation: The newly constituted Working Group on Gender Justice is inviting collaborators from all disciplines.

We feel that a shift from gender mainstreaming to gender justice in international development theory, policy and practice contexts is a worthwhile point of departure for discussion and focus. Therefore, we are opening this space/ initiative as a forum for scholars and researchers with an interest in the relationship between gender justice and international development.
