Event Description:

Special Event Celebrating the Launch of the CGA Global Gender Studies Concentration 

Uncovering the Gendered Dynamics in Global Affairs: Peace, Development, and Human Rights Beyond 2015


Thursday, September 24, 6.30 - 8.00 p.m.

Location: NYU Kimmel Center, Rosenthal Pavilion, 60 Washington Square Park South

Join the Center for Global Affairs in celebrating the launch of a new concentration in global gender studies and discussing the impact of current international crises on women – and the relationship between peaceful societies and gender equality. Issues to be examined include:

  • Quantifying women’s contribution to the global economy (in ways sometimes not recognized in the formal economy) - and how does workplace discrimination against and marginalization of women contribute to financial instability and crisis? How will trends toward austerity affect women in developing economies?
  • What has been the impact of ISIS on women's security in the region? How will Yazidi women re-integrate into their societies after escaping ISIS? What is the forecast for women affected by the largest refugee crisis since World War II?
  • Could sexual exploitation by peacekeeping forces in the Central African Republic (and elsewhere) have been prevented - and how can peacekeeping credibly move forward?
  • As we move into an election year that may include a female candidate for U.S. president, what is the outlook for women as political leaders? Are women changing politics or perpetuating old models of leadership?
