Re)building Inclusive Societies: Critical Reflections on Disability and Global Development is a partnership of researchers, disabled peoples’ organizations and policy makers. The partnership will create and share knowledge about the situations of women and men, boys and girls with disabilities in global development, particularly in post-disaster situations. This project is a joint initiative of the Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice (AMI) at Mount Saint Vincent University and Youth in Challenging Contexts Institute (CYCCI) at Dalhousie University. This project is funded by the International Development Research Centre, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Mount Saint Vincent University, and Dalhousie University.

Feminist Northern Network (FemNorthNet)

Using an intersectional gendered analysis and participatory action research, FemNorthNet focuses on sustainable economic development in the North by exploring similarities and differences among and between different groups of women. These include Aboriginal women in the North, women with disabilities, immigrant women, women with children, women of various ages and women from different language groups.

By studying these timely issues through perspectives that are often overlooked, FemNorthNet is poised to provoke broader discussions on economic restructuring and healthy communities. Tough questions about community infrastructure and social issues like poverty, violence, and housing have to be asked. And answers must include and involve women.
