The Goals of Gender and Development

Posted by on

Since 1993, Gender & Development has aimed to promote, inspire, and support development policy and practice, which furthers the goal of equality between women and men. This journal has a readership in over 90 countries and uses clear accessible language.

Each issue of Gender & Development focuses on a topic of key interest to all involved in promoting gender equality through development. An up-to-the minute overview of the topic is followed by a range of articles from researchers, policy makers, and practitioners. Insights from development initiatives across the world are shared and analysed, and lessons identified. Innovative theoretical concepts are explored by key academic writers, and the uses of these concepts for policy and practice are explored. Each issue includes an up-to-date resources section, listing publications, electronic resources, and organisations.

In addition to thematic articles, Gender & Development also contains book reviews on the latest publications relevant to this field, and a Views, Events, and Debates section, with news and views on current events and trends in gender equality and women’ rights, and interviews and debates on cutting-edge issues.
