Eligible applicants are nationals of a developing or transition country and have a documented background in work for human/labour rights for LGBTI persons and/or social movements for sexual diversity. We invite applications on the following three topics:
- How are inequalities based on sexuality (re)produced in school, the labour market, and the institutions (laws, social norms) that govern these spheres of life?
- How is sexual diversity understood ( or not) in development policy and how does that change local discourses on sexuality or does it influence social movements around sexual diversity?
How do ‘western’ identity categories (LGBT) relate to the actual experiences and identities of people in different parts of the world in relation to sexuality, and what (problematic) effects do they have in terms of who is included and excluded, what are the conditions of inclusion (and who has the power to define those).
This scholarship open to students from a developing or transition country.
To apply, you should fulfill the admission criteria of the ISS MA programme, and send a motivation letter, engaging with one of more of the three topics mentioned above, and CV to Professor Irene van Staveren.
