Welcome to all members of RC07- Women in the Global South. It will be updated on a regular basis. The name of this Research Committee has recently been changed from “Women in the Developing Nations” to “Women in the Global South”.  The reason for this is to bring the title of the RC in line with the research that members of this RC do.  Some members work on women’s representation such as quota systems, others work on women’s mobilization and activism and others research policy issues, such as migration and xenophobia, or economic development.  While gender and development will remain a focus of the RC, other areas of research will now also be represented by RC 07.   It will therefore also be able to liaise with RC19, whose members have similar research areas.
