Centre for Women’s and Gender Research

Centre for women’s and gender research, Kvinnforsk, is a meeting place for women and men, students and employees at the University of Tromsø. The aim is to strengthen competence and to stimulate gender and women research within different disciplines at the university. Kvinnforsk has longstanding relations with partners in the South. In 1999 the Centre was hosting the international triannual conference Women’s Worlds which gathered 1700 women from all over the world.
