ZEF Gender Group

OUR AIM

The Gender Group (GG) aims to strengthen gender-sensitive research at ZEF and to promote interdisciplinary collaboration on gender issues among ZEF researchers. The group focuses on supporting senior and junior researchers in integrating gender perspectives in their research projects, addressing gender differences as researchers, developing gender studies curricula and material for inter- and transdisciplinary courses, and sharing publications and ideas on gender-sensitive research.

WHAT DOES GENDER MEAN AND WHY DOES IT MATTER TO US?

Gender equality and women’s empowerment have been defined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG5) as a fundamental human right and a key aspect of a prosperous and sustainable world. Despite improvements in gender-related indicators during the last decade, there are still pervasive social norms in place that prevent women to execute their full potential and consequently hinder social progress. Moreover, women’s experiences and particular vulnerabilities tend to be invisible and excluded from research and policy implementation.
