Project Team:
Facilitator: Penny Gurstein
Project Website:
This international research network, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, developed a gender and development perspective that focused on women's experiences as agents of change as being central to policy formation on development decisions. The project involved the creation of a network of researchers working on gender and development issues in Canada, countries in Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Africa. The activities of network members included organizing a series of meetings, editing scholarly publications, and planning workshops and seminars with researchers and key policymakers. One of the initiatives is the Feminist Researchers for Action and Policy Network or FRAP-Net, an international network of researchers linking action, research and policy as catalysts for change. For more information see the FRAP-Net page.
