Gender, Identity and Inclusion (918M9)

30 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Autumn teaching

The changing shape and role of the state and the rise of the corporate/private sector as an important player in development are important institutional changes in the contemporary social development arena, whilst development programmes and policies articulated through different sectors also impact on processes of social change and gender relations.

Different women and men respond to these changing institutional arrangements differently.

You examine these issues by focusing on selected sectors of development policy, such as education, the environment and social protection, and sexual health.

We consider how these areas may interact with questions of gendered identity, agency and wellbeing.
