Description

In this presentation, IAfS Visiting Scholar Jennifer Obado-Joel presents findings of the gender analysis and insights from her summer field work in Nigeria, with a focus on the resiliency of gender hierarchies and its consequences for women’s access to economic empowerment projects and its effectiveness. Findings from this research show that even when policies or programs exist to foster women’s economic empowerment, dynamics of gender roles, and dynamics of gender relations has a high impact on the capacity of women to translate economic support to strategic investments.

Jennifer will also share her experiences conducting research among the Fulani communities in the Nigerian North East and North western regions, especially women’s experiences in the pursuit of economic progress.

Please note that a light lunch will be provided.
