Governance and management of gender relations: a comparative study of law and society


Call for proposals for early career researchers

Key dates

Deadline to submit research article abstract: Tuesday 23 December 2014

Deadline to submit full research article: Friday 23 January 2015

Workshop will be held in Dhaka, Bangladesh on Monday 23 to Thursday 26 February 2015


Integrating gender concerns in all sectors of development and achieving gender-sound planning have emerged as great challenges that dominate development paradigms all over the world including Bangladesh. Since many of these issues specifically affect women, gender-centric aspects shall be a particular focus of this workshop, building on the work of earlier research collaborations. 

The Faculty of Law at the University of Dhaka and SOAS, University of London are jointly organising a Researcher Links Workshop to bring together early career researchers from Bangladesh and the UK to stimulate critical, interdisciplinary research in the field of law and gender. During the workshops early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a research article, and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and Bangladesh.


This workshop aims to contribute to the reshaping of the field of gender and law by cross-examining and subverting traditional disciplinary borders, while drawing on a wide array of intellectual resources.


Proposals are now invited from early career researchers from the UK and Bangladesh who are within ten years of the award of their Ph.D (or similar research degree) to participate in the workshop.

How to apply

The abstract of the research article of no more than 500 words should be sent to: or on or before Tuesday 23 December 2014. The full research article must be submitted by Friday 23 January 2015. 

Successful proposal will be fully funded by the British Council covering the costs of travel, accommodation and meals.
