Research & Publications

Knowledge is power. Without it, programs and projects created with the best intentions will fall short of their goals, resources may be used inefficiently and their ultimate impact may become questionable. On a rolling basis, Paper Crown engages in gender and development research that seeks to further our in-depth understanding and knowledge of gender issues globally and to inform international dialogue and effective approaches to these critical issues. We also use this research to inform and improve our own programming, and contribute our insights to external publications ranging from topical magazines to academic journals. Research results will be made publicly available on our website.
