Review of Women's Studies

 

The Institute of Women's Studies conducts and facilitates research on Palestinian women and gender relations in Palestinian society, both through instituting its own research projects and through collecting archival materials and offering services to other researchers. Research output is used to contribute to policy formulation and development planning, in addition to contributing to the development of the women's movement agenda.  It is also meant to enhance teaching, training and intervention activities carried out by the Institute. The Institute also encourages its members to pursue their own research interests, and when in the sphere of women’s studies, attempts to provide time and resources for this research.  In particular, publications in academic journals, developmental forums and Arabic-language periodicals are highly encouraged.

The Institute has published a wide variety of studies, working papers, and status reports, including the following:
