Structural inequalities are at the heart of unequal development outcomes. Gender inequality is one of the most enduring structural defects in our political, economic, and social setup. Progressive development requires the participation of all, including women, in the design, implementation, evaluation, and, ultimately, the benefits of development policy or intervention.
ISSER recognizes the need for development policies that create space for everyone and result in development that is equitable, empowering, sustainable, and violence-free. ISSER is committed to promoting and supporting research and policy agendas that highlight and address gender equality in all aspects of experience, including education, health, employment, agriculture, industry, and finance.
