Description:

The Women and Gender in Global Perspectives (WGGP) Program is an academic unit in the International Programs and Studies (IPS) Division of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC).

WGGP promotes the study of human development in international settings.  Because such development  has gender, cultural, economic, legal, moral, political, social, and technological dimensions, they emphasize scholarly activities that advance understanding of how resource  inequalities and gender equity affect individual and community capabilities.  Through a multi-disciplinary approach, WGGP addresses and critically evaluates human development issues by:

  • Conducting research
  • Impacting policy and decision making as well as practice
  • Educating future academic and policy leaders
  • Engaging academic, policy, government, and non-governmental, and community leaders
  • Highlighting the centrality of gender in human development
