Gender, citizenship and academic power

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


The main objective of GAP is to study the impact of globalization and
internationalization policies and practices on the gender balance in research
and higher education. We address the question: how do globalization and
internationalization influence gender equality in research and higher education
The secondary objectives of GAP are to: 1) study the recruitment and
career patterns of foreign-born women and men in Norwegian research
and higher education, 2) examine how changes in academic demography
(in terms of gender and international recruitment) influence local research
agendas and organizations, practices and power structures, and 3)
contribute to the research institutions' expertise and repertoire of measures
to improve gender balance in a context of international recruitment and
integration by developing policy guidelines for the institutions in collaboration
with stakeholders.
The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council
