UN Women discussion paper series

The UN Women discussion paper series is an initiative led by the Research and Data Section of UN Women, to provide grounded, fresh and robust perspectives on some of the contemporary challenges to achieving gender equality and women’s rights, and offer insights into policy innovations that are making a difference in women’s lives.

The series is a space for leading feminist researchers to share original, substantive research from different national and regional contexts. Before being published, each paper benefits from an anonymous external peer review process by experts, so that the final product is a high-quality and relevant piece of research that contributes to further scholarship in the field.
