Gender & Development is the only journal in the world to focus on international gender and development issues.


Gender & Development is the only journal in the world to focus on international gender and development issues, exploring the connections between gender and development initiatives, and feminist perspectives.

It aims to debate best practice and new ideas, and to make the links between theoretical and practical gender and development work. Gender & Development appears three times a year, in March, July, and November. Each collection of materials focuses on a current 'hot topic'.

Gender & Development is published for Oxfam by Routledge/Taylor & Francis as a print and electronic journal, available by subscription. Visit the Taylor & Francis website for more on how to subscribe.

Content is also available free of charge through the Policy & Practice publications section. Individual articles can be downloaded from the site for the use of development practitioners, policymakers and students interested in a particular topic.
