Projects

IGDS: NBU engages in a variety of projects aimed at deepening the Caribbean's understanding gender relations and promoting gender-responsive human relations. These projects often combine our research, outreach and teaching interests, allowing us to bring our expertise to bear in a range of areas. Our current focus ranges from gender in relation to education, the economy, the law and the family to sexual orientation, gender identity and human rights protections. We are also hoping to address sexual violence, leadership and the potential of youth as agents of change.

Quotes

" We need to broaden our horizons and begin to ask those awkward questions about what sexuality looks like for the majority of women especially under contemporary global economic conditions, how heternormativity has developed and today is lived on a day-to-day basis, what makes sexuality pleasurable, what makes it oppressive and exploitative, and how it is linked to gender and other axes of power. "
Power, Labour, Pleasure: Sexuality in Everyday Life, Kamala Kempadoo
