Gender Centre

The Gender Centre at the Graduate Institute produces transformative research that questions gendered power relations in development and international relations.


Working across the globe and committed to policy relevance, our researchers combine their expertise from across disciplines and the field of gender studies to focus on four areas:

  • Political Economy and Development
  • Gender in International Governance
  • Violence, Conflict and Peacebuilding
  • Body Politics and Health

Our approach is theoretically informed and empirically grounded, valorising diverse voices.

We disseminate widely, foster critical debate and deliberation engaging a range of stakeholders to advance gender justice.
