The Bachelor of Arts in Gender and Development at the Institute of African Studies is a degree programme designed and developed to articulate gender and development issues in a changing political, socio-economic and cultural environment. At a more theoretical level, the programme seeks to provide a deeper understanding of an evolving gender system as a socially constructed system of hierarchical relationships, which are manifested differently under diverse cultural contexts. At the level of intervention, the focus is on how development partners can be sensitized and encouraged to increase their support for and commitment to the promotion of gender equity through a variety of gender responsive policies and programmes and also to develop strategies to accelerate and institutionalize the process of gender mainstreaming.
