The Policy Project in Transnational Applied Research in Gender Equity Training (TARGET) aims to: 1) draw on the expertise of E.U. researchers to develop evaluation criteria for gender mainstreaming training in U.S. development projects, with the UW-Madison producing a database of gender expertise and training programs in the United States; 2) compare this U.S. development-focused gender mainstreaming to that conducted within the E.U. among the member states, to identify context-specific differences in training needs and enhance the focus on race/ethnic and other types of intersectional inequalities in gender mainstreaming training; 3) conduct four expert workshops, one in the United States and three in the European Union, to specifically identify best practices in gender mainstreaming training with regard to content (HU Berlin), methodology (RAD Nijmengen) and curriculum standards (UCM Madrid), as well as for outreach into third country development for training the trainers (NU Boston); 4) develop a curriculum manual for E.U. trainers and disseminate best practices for teaching the gender mainstreaming approach both within the European Union and the United States and in third countries—both by making data and reports available on the Web and by publishing and presenting the research results in academic and applied contexts.
TARGET will serve as a seed project for future curriculum development and student exchange programs in both the United States and the European Union.
In Fall 2009 and Spring 2010, UW-Madison hosted invited speakers and continued with interviews. The project will also coordinate implementation plans with the E.U. partners to complete the training manual to be used by them. In Spring 2010, UW-Madison hosted a 2 day interdisciplinary workshop (New Perspectives on Gender and Human Security). Ninety national and international scholars and students participated.
In the next year, we will be editing a book based on contributions from visiting scholars, members of the RC and graduate students on Gender Perspectives on Human Security (NYU Press). Tripp (Tanzania) and Ferree (CEU-Budapest) will be leading multi-national graduate training seminars in the Summer of 2010, and thus establishing a still wider network among gender policy researchers internationally.
We will also continue work on gender expertise, with a focus on institutional transformation, from the TransCoop program of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
