Adryan Wallace, assistant professor of politics and government, was a participant in a U.N. panel entitled "Women's Empowerment: Post 2015 Policies at the Intersection of Feminist Theology and Feminist Economics," during the 47th Session of the Commission on Population and Development on Friday, April 11.
Professor Wallace was one of three scholars whose forthcoming article in the Journal of Feminist Economics was explored during the panel in an effort to devise strategies to help ensure that women's empowerment is mainstreamed into the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) processes post 2015.
The panel was co-sponsored by UNFPA and U.N. Women and took place during the week of the U.N. Commission on Population and Development. The purpose of the panel was to "inform broader policy debates around the link between women's empowerment, economics and religion" as the U.N. works to cultivate new policy frameworks around the Millennium Development Goals beyond 2015.
