Research & Documentation

The Research and Documentation Team, headed by Professor Eva Rathgeber is responsible for identifying research which can inform the advocacy positions of the Gender Caucus.  This team is particularly interested in facilitating research collaboration among Northern and Southern based researchers, based at universities and other institutions.
