GENDER AND DEVELOPMENT

Gender and Development has become a new and contemporary discourse in the discussion of international development. Gender has no longer become a simply biological marker but diffused in power relations.

You will have the opportunity to explore the rise of the field with historical context, as well as bring in contemporary context to the 21st century.
