CREA’s Sexuality, Gender, and Rights Institute is an annual residential course—begun in 2007—which focuses on a conceptual study of sexuality and its application to program interventions. The Institute examines the links between sexuality, rights, gender, and health, and their interface with socio-cultural and legal issues. Participants critically analyze policy, research, and program interventions using a rights-based approach.
Sexuality is a complex field of study, which spans multiple disciplines and areas of work. Accordingly, the course content of the Sexuality, Gender, and Rights Institute will focus on a conceptual and theoretical study of sexuality, drawing from different social science disciplines and the intersections between them. Activists and academics will teach the course using classroom instruction, group work, case studies, simulation exercises, fiction, and films.
