The Gender and Population course provides participants with the opportunity to broaden and deepen their understanding of how gender relations structure a society’s social institutions in ways affecting the definition and realisation of its population’s development goals; to sharpen their analytical skills for examining gender-related obstacles and opportunities in a range of development contexts; to become familiar with a collection of cases from around the world where effective strategies to address gender issues have been implemented successfully; and to study and research in-depth specific gender and development issues of concern to them. The course draws on recent advances in gender analysis and applies them to the field of population and development.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- critique case studies on gender and development;
- design a development project that is gender sensitive;
- analyse population problems using a gender perspective; and
- prepare a policy brief based on an analysis of a gender issue.
- Three literature reviews (15% each) (45) [LO 1,2,3]
- Student proposal presentation, 15mins (20) [LO 2]
- Paper on Gender and Population (3000 words) (35) [LO 1,2,3,4]
