The Institute for Gender and Development Studies has a long history of involvement in regional, community and faculty research. Gender Studies is by definition multi-disciplinary or even trans-disciplinary and the Institute seeks to collaborate with colleagues in other disciplinary locations in collaborative research. The regional programme is concerned with gendered issues that affect the Caribbean and aims to build gender consciousness and gender analysis skills in both research and policy in the region. The Institute is also involved in interdisciplinary collaborative research networks including university staff from other faculties and departments as well as other universities. Finally, individual staff members have their own research networks, which reflect their particular interests and areas of expertise.
