Modulets indhold, forløb og pædagogik

To provide students with knowledge about and insight into gender theories and how these can be used in analyses of inequalities within the field of development policy and international and transnational relations.

The course will give an introduction to the area of ‘gender and globalisation’, in particular in the context of development and international relations, and will include discussions of specific cases and case studies in which gender and equality can be understood from local, regional and global perspectives (including the EU as a regional institution).
