The programme investigates what enables women, individually and collectively, to empower themselves, how they can sustain these changes, and how development agencies’ policies support or hinder this process in order to make such changes visible and to build on them to inspire a radical shift in policy and practice.
The key areas of focus are : •Locating empowerment in women’s everyday lives, applying a range of methodological and analytical strategies to gain a better understanding of how positive change happens in women’s lives. •Tracing policy processes that seek to promote women’s empowerment in order to understand the enabling conditions, strategies and tactics for achieving policy change. •Understanding strategies for change, seeking to reveal the factors for success and asking what works and what is specific to particular contexts, and what more generic lessons can be drawn.
