Miriam Holds Summer Courses on Gender, Human Rights, Migration

MANILA, Philippines - The Miriam College Women and Gender Institute (WAGI) will hold its annual summer courses on gender, human rights, and migration.

The Gender Fair Education set on April 23 to 27, is designed for development workers and educators in formal and non-formal education. It introduces gender and development and rights perspectives as teaching and learning tools in integrating gender in education.

Meanwhile, the International Women's Human Rights (IWHR) course slated on April 30 to May 5 discusses the use of international human rights instruments from gender and rights perspectives in analyzing complex issues of discrimination, inequality and oppression brought about by the intersecting factors of class, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, and others.

The Summer Institute on Migration which will run from May 7 to 12, provides a critical overview of the processes, dynamics and challenges of migration in the context of a globalized world.

The Gender and Development Planning and Budgeting course set on May 14 to 17 is based on the findings of the review of the Philippine Gender and Development (GAD) Budget Policy in 2009 and 2010. It will focus on the theory and practice of gender-responsive planning and budgeting which include sessions on gender analysis, design of gender-responsive projects and programs, and the preparation of GAD budgets.
