Global Resources

Welcome to the Global Resources Database. This library contains over 3,000 specially selected gender documents picked from over 1,500 sources. It covers longstanding concerns and debates as well as emerging issues. It provides access to research, reports and policy documents, as well as records of good practice, lessons learnt and case studies, amongst other things. Each resource has been summarised providing a brief overview, key findings and recommendations, to help you save time deciding which resources you really want to read.

The database is added to monthly with the latest resources on a particular theme and/or region. We often pick a theme which is particularly relevant, for example, linking in with the theme of a key international gender event or campaign. However some months we like to showcase work from a region or on a theme that is underrepresented to provide space for more marginalised issue and further add to the diversity of our database.

We also strive to make resources available in languages other than English. A number of resources are available in French and Spanish, as well as other languages within the database.
