Interdisciplinary Seminars and Workshops

Selected Interdisciplinary Seminar Papers

Presented as part of the proceedings of the 31st Triennial IFUW Conference Istanbul, August 2013.

These papers represent some of the responses made by members of IFUW to a call for twenty minute presentations at Conference on topics bearing on four broad themes: Sustainable Futures and Urbanisation, Education and Gender Inequalities, Violence against Women as a threat to Sustainability, and Women’s Human Rights. The views expressed are those of the individual member, not necessarily those of IFUW.

 

Participants were invited to address their papers to one or more of the following: to inform fellow members of the situation in particular countries, to share experiences of problems and solutions or to stimulate general discussion of a relevant issue. Time for questions and comments from the audience was a crucial part of the seminar sessions.

 

The papers can be accessed by clicking on the links below.  No attempt has been made to eliminate the considerable variation in conventions of formal presentation (especially with regard to matters of presenting lists, referencing and the structure of Bibliographies) resulting from their origin in different disciplines and different countries.

 

The email address of the authors has been provided with their consent. Should you wish to take up any matter in any of these papers, please communicate directly with the corresponding author.
