The Women and Gender in Global Perspectives (WGGP) Program is an academic unit in the International Programs and Studies Division of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. We promote the study of human development in international settings. Because such development has gender, cultural, economic, legal, moral, political, social, and technological dimensions, we emphasize scholarly activities that advance our understanding of how resource inequalities and gender equity affect individual and community capabilities. Through a multi-disciplinary approach, we address and critically evaluate human development issues by: Conducting research; Impacting policy and decision making as well as practice; Educating future academic and policy leaders; Engaging academic, policy, government, and non-governmental, and community leaders; and Highlighting the centrality of gender in human development
