In order to create a space for new voices in the spheres of academia, policy-making and practice, in 2005 INSTRAW launched a new research-paper series entitled New Voices, New Perspectives. Directed towards recent post-graduate students worldwide, this paper series is intended as an opportunity for students enrolled in gender-related programmes to contribute to global debates and to our communal sphere of knowledge on women’s and gender issues.

The 2005 Call for Papers focused on some of INSTRAW’s priority research areas, including Gender, Governance and Women’s Political Participation; Gender, Migration and Remittances; and Gender, Peace and Security. The Papers selected and published in 2005* are listed below, and cover a variety of topics from women’s participation in the water sector in Nepal to the gender dimensions of the Responsibility to Protect Doctrine.
