Women Research Institute

Promoting women leadership and inclusive,
gender-based, and sustainable natural resource governance

The aim of this symposium is to look in a new way at the contemporary issues affecting Asia and its peoples. Rapid and ongoing political, economic and social change in the Asian region shapes interactions between and within states, and influences the dynamics of the everyday life. The benefits and consequences of this change are unevenly distributed among communities across the region.

In relation to the development of the curricula and training plan, Health Services Program (HSP) and Women Research Institute (WRI) during the next six-month period (July 13 - August 31, 2007) will organized 14 workshops in districts namely: (1) Serang; (2) Tangerang; (3) Jakarta Barat; (4) Jember; (5) Malang; (6) Aceh Barat; (7) Aceh Besar; (8) Banda Aceh; (9) Deli Serdang; (10) Medan; (11) Sumedang; (12) Kota Bandung; (13) Bogor; (14) Aceh Jaya and (15) Kediri.
