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

Overview

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.

Established in 1993, the journal is a forum for all involved in development initiatives: policy-makers and practitioners, researchers both inside and outside academia, and activists. 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'. A particular feature of the project is the high level of contributions from practitioners, and from the global South. We have users in over 90 countries.

Contribute to the journal

Contributions are welcome from all involved in development initiatives: policy-makers and practitioners, researchers both inside and outside academia, and feminist activists. For more information on contributing as well as all the latest news, visit the Gender & Development website:  www.genderanddevelopment.org.

The Working in Gender and Development book series (WiGaD) brings together themed selections of the best articles from Gender & Development, and other Oxfam publications repackaged in book format.

Titles in this series present the theory and practice of gender-oriented development in a way that records experience, describes good practice, and shares information about resources. As such, they contribute to and review current thinking on the gender dimensions of particular development and relief issues.

You can buy print editions of this book series at the Development Bookshop.
