The objectives ...
The objectives of this seminar are broadly two-fold: first, to gain a solid understanding of the patterns and constraints of gender inequality around the world up to the present day, and second, to review and debate what we know and don’t know about what policies and programs can work to close gender gaps, with a focus on developing countries. The seminar will cover a broad range of topics, from economic opportunities, to gender based violence, to the global agenda and post 2015 framework.
