Women’s Leadership in Sudan: Challenges and Opportunities
Women in Sudan have not only been impacted by the country’s current situation, but by years of conflict, war, and other socio-economic restraints, all of which contributed to their exclusion, and underrepresentation in the public and policy-making spheres. Consequently, women’s imprint in leadership positions and decision-making roles remain weak. To make policy improvements and the consequential monumental shift necessary, an evidence-based approach must be adopted, calling for the need for robust academic research.
With this in mind, Haggar Stakeholders latest Forum was held as a conference titled: ‘Women’s Leadership in Sudan: Challenges and Opportunities’ in collaboration with the Middle East Centre (MEC) at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences (LSE) and IEL International on November 26th, 2022. The conference disseminated and discussed the outcomes of the first stage of the project on the barriers and enablers of women’s leadership in Sudan, a project conducted by MEC at LSE and IEL International.
