REGISTER HERE

The NYU Center for Global Affairs is thrilled to announce the continuation of our webinar series, "Course Pop-ups." Each Pop-up will be hosted by the instructor for an upcoming course at the CGA. We invite you to join us and hear more about new and timely topics and to experience a snapshot of what you'll learn as a student in the course!

Course Pop-up: GLOB1-GC 2385, Gender and Development: Policy and Politics.

In our Course Pop-up: Gender and Development: Policy and Politics, Clinical Professor Anne Marie Goetz discusses the cost of gender discrimination. Her short lecture, "The Equality Pay-off," will explore how gender inequality is normalized to a point that we do not even notice the ways in which it seriously distorts development and undermines social and political capacities to deal with crises peacefully and in ways that build resilience, let alone social justice. Join Professor Goetz, who has worked as a policy-maker at the UN on gender issues, to explore the costs of gender equality and the how the world could gain from ending gender-based discrimination.

About the Course:

Women's rights, their access to resources, ability to control their fertility, their engagement in public decision-making, have improved tremendously around the world over the past century, with a striking acceleration between 1989 – 2016. Even before the COVID_19 pandemic, there were signs of a deceleration and of growing backlash against women's rights, often connected to rising authoritarianism and ethno-nationalism in some parts of the world. The pandemic has exposed, like an x-ray, the profound gender, race and other inequalities in our societies, and the lockdown response to the pandemic has created specific care labor burdens for women and amplified the risks they face of intimate partner violence. This course examines gender issues in the context of poverty and development.
