Gender justice and development research co-authored by Dr Lata Narayanaswamy published by the United Nations
The research was published by the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development.
Front cover of the research publication by Dr Lata Narayanaswamy and Dr McEwen.
The publication was commissioned by the Gender Justice and Development programme as part of an ongoing inquiry into the growing backlash against progress in gender equality and rights.
The paper, ‘The International Anti-Gender Movement: Understanding the Rise of Anti-Gender Discourses in the Context of Development, Human Rights and Social Protection’, interrogates the ways anti-gender, or “pro-family”, actors and organizations are using the frameworks and language of “development” to advance arguments and policies that restrict the rights of LGBTIQ+ people and seek to limit how sexual and reproductive health and rights are understood.
