The project included the following components:
The culmination of the project – a special issue of Gender & Development featuring articles developed through the online discussion and learning event.
Learning Event in London 10-11 February 2014
Participants from the online discussion were joined by others in an exciting event – sharing learning, and discussing their visions of feminist, transformative approaches to care. With experience of working on care in a variety of different contexts, including in conflict situations, union organising, tracking unpaid care work in development programmes, private sector approaches, and working with men, this diverse group of practitioners will provide the content for our special issue on Care, to be published in November 2014.

Online Discussion 4-5 November 2013
The 4th and 5th November 2013 saw 50 specially-invited experts take part inour 48-hour online discussion, exploring Care as it affects (and is affected by) development and humanitarian work. The discussion, which proved to be rich and thoughtful, followed three different topic threads, and we have made available the transcripts of the discussions for each different thread below, so you can follow the debates as they developed.
