Gender Programme

Launched in 1983 in accordance with the Council’s mandate of strengthening Gender Research and Analysis pertaining to Africa, the Gender Programme became one of the Core programmes of the Council in 1996, upon the recommendation of a Gender Task Force that was set up in 1995.

Twinned with this main recommendation was the mainstreaming of gender into the Council’s programmes. The Gender Programme thus occupies a central position in the work of the Council, as a programme geared at growing Gender knowledge through specific, clearly targeted interventions; and as a broader programme whose activities cross-cut the various aspects of the Council’s work. The main dimensions to the programme are: Research, Training, Policy Dialogue, Publications and Knowledge dissemination.

The main objectives of gender Programme are: to consolidate the progress that has been made in generating a gender-transformative social science through a systematic identification of new methodological concerns and instruments; To provide concrete opportunities to a new generation of young male and female scholars to take creative approaches to gender-related research, To consider systematically the various implications of gender research and gender analysis in Africa, To understand better the interactions of gendered realities among different social levels.
