UNESCO Women's Studies and Gender Research Network

UNESCO has launched this network to support development of women's studies and gender research.

The UNESCO Network of Women’s Studies and Gender Research (WS/GR), launched from within the Human Rights and Gender Equality Section, Social and Human Sciences Sector, is the first of its kind to involve institutions from across the globe. It aims at promoting policy oriented research on and advocacy for women’s rights and gender equality, building capacities and advancing women studies (as part of the teaching of social and human sciences), and strengthening collaboration among university/ research centers on women and gender issues across continents. 

The first meeting of the Network was held in Miriam College, Manila, Philippines 25-26 July 2007. To read more on this project, please click on the link below.
