The Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security is pleased to announce a new U.S.-China Research Group on Women and Society, organized under the auspices of the Georgetown University Initiative for U.S.-China Dialogue on Global Issues.
Since the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women held in Beijing in 1995, both countries have made progress on women’s rights, although the progress is often slow and uneven.
The U.S.-China Research Group on Women and Society gathers 12 top scholars and practitioners from U.S. and Chinese universities, research institutions, think tanks, and advocacy groups for structured dialogue around the issues women face in today’s global community.
The goal of the dialogue is to identify issues of common concern and to develop and pursue a shared research agenda that can inform better policy and advance practical cooperation in bilateral and multilateral contexts.
The Research Group on Women and Society is led by Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Executive Director of GIWPS, and Dr. Liu Meng, dean of the School of Law and Politics at Zhejiang Normal University.
