Fascinating presentation from Professor Shirley Randell

  • 15 April 2016

On Wednesday 13 April, Mokoro was visited by Professor Shirley Randell who gave a fascinating presentation on the impact of women’s political leadership on democracy and development in Rwanda. Over the last ten years, Shirley has worked extensively in Rwanda, including establishing the Centre for Gender, Culture and Development Studies at the Kigali Institute of Education, now the Centre for Gender at the University of Rwanda. Her presentation drew on a number of these graduates as well as highlighting findings from recent research undertaken for the Commonwealth on women’s political participation.
