6th International Conference on Gender Research
20-21 April 2023, Ulster University Magee Campus,
Derry - Londonderry, Northern Ireland

University of Ulster - Northern Ireland

Welcome to ICGR 2023

Despite some advances being made in the area, topics related to gender research remain pertinent and are gaining momentum in a changing society. It is thus important to empower and to develop research on specific gender topics, in order to acquire a clearer understanding and to obtain important insights.

Now in its sixth year the International Conference on Gender Research intends to be established in the cutting edge of gender research and we welcome everyone researching in this area to present their work and to the scientific community. ICGR is an event which brings likeminded researchers together from across the world to share their research and discuss the issues closest to gender research.
