Materials (papers and presentations) are now available online from the 18th Annual AUC Research Conference whose focus this year was “Social Justice: Theory, Research and Practice”. The conference was very timely, considering all the recent political and social change in Egypt, and was even more successful than past AUC research conferences. I highly recommend checking out the keynote speech by Mahmood Mamdani.
Additionally, Pathways researchers put together a panel called Gender Justice and Making the Law Work for Women, chaired by Hania Sholkamy, which contained the following presentations:
- The Social relations of social protection: Gendering the welfare regime (Hania Sholkamy)
- Informal work and social justice: Including the poor in Egypt’s democratic transition (Heba Gowayed, Mahmoud Hazzaa)
- The Limits of law: Reforming Egyptian family laws and the question of gender justice (Mulki Al-Sharmani)
- Political power and women’s quotas in Egypt (Sawsan el Sherif)
