KOC-KAM’s affiliated faculty and researchers come together with a common interest to foster debate and create awareness of gender issues in Turkey and elsewhere as well as to collaborate on their gender-related research, which becomes only stronger when an interdisciplinary and multi-methodological perspective is endorsed. We have a firm belief in the necessity of using a gender lens in any research and we acknowledge the interdependence between academic scholarship, social practice, and gender-policy.

Our research interests include but are not limited to the following areas:

• Family, gender, self and human development
• Women’s human rights
• Gender equality, law and politics
• Feminism, feminist theory and philosophy
• Gender in the visual arts
• Women’s health, body politics care
• Women’s movements, participation and Democracy
• Women in science and engineering
