The programme‘s curriculum builds upon scholarship in gender equality and development studies incorporating major interdisciplinary agenda, intellectual debates and recent methodological practices.

The goal is to strengthen the capacity of the fellows who attend the programme and the institutions/organisations they represent for advancing and implementing gender sensitive projects and policies.
