Gender & Identity in the Global South Series: Week 1



This series in an online course that explores gender, identity, and human rights in the Global South.

The first installment of the Gender & Identity in the Global South series focuses on the nature of resistance for sexual and gender minorities. There is no difference between sexual minorities struggle and other religious and ethnic minorities fighting for protection, recognition and equality. It is about the freedom to live a dignified life regardless of one’s sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religion or ethnicity. But how are we to understand gender, identity and human rights and why should we care?

Speakers: Magnus M. Harrison and Lars Henriksen
