Constructions of Gender (NuFu Addis-UiT)

In 1999, a research collaboration was established between Institute of gender Studies at Addis Abeba University and UiT. Funded by NuFu, five sub-projects started in 2002 under the umbrella “Urbanisation and Gender in Ethiopia”. These were finalised in 2007, and a new five year funding started the project “Constructions of Gender in the Formal and Informal Sector in Ethiopia”. While the first project was conducted as individual projects the collaboration inspired us to use the second project as an opportunity for researchers from Ethiopia and Norway to do joint research.
