The ICFG is the competence centre for inter- and transdisciplinary gender research at the University of Bern. We explore socio-politically relevant topics from a gender perspective and formulate practice-relevant recommendations. We are currently working on the following priority topics: Gender & Development, Human Rights & Discrimination, Work & Careers, Gender Equality Policy, Postcolonialism, Emancipatory Movements, Feminist Theory, Poverty & Precarity and Care. In these thematic areas, the ICFG has not only conducted basic research in recent years, but has also taken on numerous research mandates and scientific consultations for administration, politics and civil society. The Centre has made a name for itself internationally with innovative products (e.g. "Women's Human Rights App"). The ICFG is also part of the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights (SKMR).
