    The newly established IKD Gender and Social Policy theme aims at bringing together human and social scientists within FASS working on gender and feminist approaches to investigate contemporary socio-economic dynamics. Academic members of this theme ideally would engage in theoretical, empirical, methodological, and policy debates centered on gendered and/or feminist approaches to political economy and development processes. The members would also engage with up-to-date debates within gender-related policy circles.
