The International Conference on Gender Equality (ICGE-1), “Gender, Governance and Inclusion” is a key global event organized by the Gender Park this year to accelerate progress towards our vision of a gender just society.
UN Women is our key partner. The conference will bring together a global membership of delegates (particularly from the developing countries of the South) and provide a platform to share global experiences in reducing gender inequalities.
ICGE aims to entail an informative and interactive program including plenary sessions, thematic paper presentations and panel discussions by the gender experts from around the world and poster presentations by young scholars.
The sessions will be focused on the themes of Health, Education, Work, Governance, Citizenship, Globalization, Masculinities, Disability and Media.
The aim of ICGE is also to generate a high quality publication that will capture knowledge and lessons in this area as well as formulate a 2015 ICGE Statement on the way forward. The best of the selected papers will be considered for the publication.
Empirically grounded papers which critically reflect on ‘gender inclusion and governance’ through any of the following foci are invited:
