IGDS: NBU's Unique Offering

The IGDS: NBU provides a strong foundation for trans-, multi- and inter-disciplinary research on women, men and gender. Our offerings are tailored to meet the specific needs of students and partners to ensure the Institute remains relevant while maintaining its commitment to excellent research, teaching and outreach.
In our undergraduate, graduate, diploma and certificate programmes, students unravel the complexity of Caribbean gender relations in all aspects of daily life. Teaching is guided by feminist theories and gender & development perspectives, principles, practices and research.
 

Quotes

" Women as citizens represent more than themselves when they negotiate or are denied negotiations for inclusion in local government. Caribbean Women also represent a constituency of children and older dependents. Their needs and political relevance are not always articulated as primary citizens with an equal claim on the resources of the political system. Engendering local government strives to give women a collective political voice, to create a strong political base for policies that are just, equitable and people centered."
Engendering Local Government in the Commonwealth Caribbean, Violet Eudine Barriteau
