The newly established OU-IKD Gender and Social Policy theme aims at bringing together human and social scientists working on gender and feminist approaches to investigate contemporary socio-economic dynamics. Academic members of this theme engage in theoretical, empirical, methodological, and policy debates centred on gendered and/or feminist approaches to political economy, development, and policy processes.

We are launching this new initiative with a great Panel Discussion on "Gender, Social Policy and Policy Responses"
