About Gender & Development

Gender & Development is a unique journal that is also a project. Its aim is to inspire, influence and support development and humanitarian policy and practice, promoting  social justice and gender equality. Published by Oxfam for 25 years in partnership with Routledge/Taylor & Francis, the journal has become essential reading.

We publish accessible yet rigorous articles by gender and development practitioners, policymakers and researchers, and feminist activists from around the globe.

Each of our three issues per year focuses on a cutting-edge theme.
