We launch our Natural Resource Justice issue in Washington, DC


Join us online on Wednesday 6 December 2017 at 3.00pm (UK) 10.00am (US EST) 
at a special launch event.
 
In conjunction with Oxfam America the journal is delighted to be convening a discussion to examine natural resource justice through the lens of gender equality and women's rights.

Panelists 

Rachel Perks: Mining Specialist, World Bank
Lisa VeneKlasen: Executive Director, Just Associates (JASS)
Hussein Hirji: Economic Counsellor and Development Focal Point, Embassy of Canada in Washington, DC
 
The debate will be moderated by Gender & Development's editor, Caroline Sweetman.
 
From a riveting account of life in a Ugandan artisanal gold mining camp to understanding the gendered impact of resource development in Guatemala, and challenging "super-patriarchy" in large-scale mining, the development researchers, practitioners, and feminist activists contributing to our Natural Resource Justice issue seek to unpack just what it would take to put gender equality and women's rights at the centre of natural resource justice.
 
Wednesday's panel of experts will be discussing the implications of the articles and charting ways forward.

To listen to the debate join us online on Wednesday 6 December 2017 at 3.00pm (UK) 10.00am (US EST).
