Overview

Gender and related categories of e.g. religion, ethnicity, ‘race’, class and sexuality pose multiple inequalities which are vital for our understanding of development and international relations in a globalising world. Discriminations and inequalities (e.g. at the labour market) can be related to different globalisation processes (e.g. global migration processes) as these can be recognised in different regions and continents of the world.

The Global Gender Studies programme at Aalborg University gives a specific focus to gendered perspectives upon structures and processes in international law (including human rights), equality politics on national, transnational and international levels, global democracy and governance, international institutions and transnational actors.

Global Gender Studies can be followed:

  • As a specialisation in the two-year Master’s programme Development and International Relations (DIR)
  • As a specialisation in the two-year Master’s programme European Studies (ES)
  • As two modules of each 5 ECTS as part of the above programmes or other Master’s programmes, for instance Culture, Communication and Globalisation (CCG).

Job and career

The specialisation’s specific focus on gendered perspectives upon structures and processes in international law (including human rights), equality politics on national, transnational and international levels, global democracy and governance, international institutions and transnational actors opens the door to a variety of professional career possibilities where gender and discrimination are a central component, such as in Nordic, European and international organisations, NGOs, institutions and universities.
