Gender and Development
Having recently celebrated its 30th anniversary, this is one of the longest running degrees on gender and development. You’ll gain a solid understanding of debates in feminist thinking, and link them to gendered policy and programming. You’ll develop in-depth knowledge for gendered analysis using an intersectional lens on issues such as : women’s economic and political empowerment ; political economy, environment and feminist mobilisation for social justice ; sexuality, masculinity and disability. Our groundbreaking work challenges ideas about gender. We work with nuanced, fluid perspectives on gender and sex, and the ways they interact. You’ll gain the skills required to participate effectively in gender- and development-related research, policy-making and programme implementation. This degree is based at the Institute of Development Studies. You’ll benefit from our international research faculty’s expertise and our working relationships with partner organisations around the world. Your course teachers are all active in the field, working on high-level policy-oriented programming and cutting-edge academic research.
