Course Description

Gender and Development is an interdisciplinary course that critically examines the relationship between gender, development, and social justice. The course aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of how gender affects development outcomes and how development policies and programs can promote gender equality and empowerment. The course will explore the key concepts and theories related to gender and development, such as the social construction of gender, intersectionality, and feminist development.

The course will also examine the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the role of gender mainstreaming in achieving these goals.
