Dear Colleagues,

>From February 2016 – March 2017 the Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies (ICFG), University of Bern, conducts the CAS Gender, Justice, Globalisation. A team of renowned experts introduce the participants in seven different modules to the gender dimension of human rights, work, gendered impacts of economic globalization and development or cultural differences. Each module can also be attended separately.

They will gain insight into international institutions which engage with gender issues. Included in this module is a trip to Geneva on the main topic of refugee women & girls, where the participants will meet representatives of UN institutions and other experts.
