Gender and Development

Gender as an analytical category has become an integral part of the policies of all major international development organizations. Against this background, the module starts with an introduction into theoretical approaches to the field of gender and development. Closely linked to these theories, it analyzes the evolution of gender policies in the context of development. Simultaneously, the module introduces the relevant international agreements and obligations in the field. Making the connection between theory, legal framework and praxis, it informs about the main concepts of gender in development cooperation. Against this background, the module gives insight into gender sensitive approaches in different contexts like government development cooperation, humanitarian aid or development activities of NGOs. This is illustrated with reference to important fields such as work, social policy, public life or conflict.
