Empowering women

We research mobilization for gender equality and social change.

We are at the forefront of both conceptual and empirical research, and combine a broad array of quantitative and qualitative methods.

We communicate our research to stakeholders to increase its reach and impact. Geographically, we work in and with partners from countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, South-East Asia and Latin America.

Our research and evaluation expertise:

  • Gender based violence
  • Female employment and women’s economic empowerment
  • Women’s political participation and representation
  • Sexual, reproductive and maternal health
  • Women, peace and security
