Gender and Development Panel

  • pin G.159- MacLaren Stuart Room, Old College, University of Edinburgh (map)

Pathways for Peace invites you to our panel that will discuss the question: "What is the relationship between gender and development?".

Our panel aims to understand the roles women and girls have played in the International Development field and the ways in which they are disproportionately affected.

We are delighted to announce our panelists for the evening are Dr. Radhika Govinda, Dr. Ayaz Qureshi, and Megan Harrington. Each panelist will share their experience and research on the relationship between gender and development before opening up the conversation to questions from the audience.

Our panelists will be focusing on three specialized interests in regards to the topic of gender and development:

Dr. Radhika Govinda will be discussing questions of intersectionality and decolonisation and its relationship to conceptions of gender and development.

Dr. Ayaz Qureshi will be looking at gender and sexual minorities in development, focusing on the ways in which global health interventions in HIV/AIDS prevention have sparked a sense of community and activism, leading to demands for recognition of sexual rights and gender difference/equality.

Megan Harrington will be discussing gender, development, and intersectionality based on her fieldwork in Malawi. She will be talking about the difference a gender and development approach makes to project planning and to research, and specifically how this manifests itself within an African context.

The event will be held in MacLaren Stuart Room (G.159) in Old College, please be sure to arrive on time in order to guarantee your seat.

This event is free and open to all.
