CLICK HERE to see what happened at the Gender Conference in July!
In the coming decades, as we seek poverty reduction and social justice in contexts of apparent plenty, the extremes of income inequality emerging across developed and developing nations will be the major challenge for development. These inequalities result from deep structural barriers to social mobility and change. We believe that a better understanding of how gender relations influence and are effected by processes of economic and social polarisation, at a range of scales from the very local to the global, is critical in order to inform development policy.
The International Conference on Gender Relations and Rising Inequalities aims to bring together gender analysts, researchers and research scholars for a sustained consideration of changing gender relations in contexts of rising inequality, and to stimulate new ways of thinking about gender relations.
A series of panels will explore different aspects of gender and inequality:
- Migration, Status and multi/trans-national relations
- Social Reproduction, Generations and Educational Aspirations
- "Gender Equality" norms, mobilisation and policy change
- Gender Inequality, Consumption and Changing Identities
- Labour markets, microfinance and women's empowerment
- Environmental/climatic change and gendered inequalities
- Gender and Violence
See here for details of the panels and convenors and full programme details.
