Gender and Women's Studies at Kabul UniversityOct 10, 2016
In 2015, Kabul University and UNDP launched Afghanistan’s first-ever Master’s degree in Gender and Women’s Studies. UNDP also inaugurated a Gender Resources Center within the faculty, equipped with computers, books and research materials.
The two-year Master’s programme covers gender and women’s rights, such as legal protection and the role of women in poverty reduction, conflict resolution, civil society engagement and politics. Uniquely, the courses are tailored to the Afghan context and based on best practices in promoting gender equality in Islamic countries.
