LERU - Gender group
The Gender Group is a Thematic group primarily responsible for contributing the expertise on specific topics related to the specific remit.
Thematic groups operate on an activity-driven, self-organising and voluntary basis. The range of possible activities is wide and open-ended, as long as they fall within the scope of LERU’s mission. The choice of activity is up to the thematic groups themselves: it could be to examine a particular topic for identifying good practice, for mutual learning and exchange of information or people, or for contributing to policy development focused on their specific expertise or discipline(s), to organise a workshop on a specific topic of interest, etc.
