GPID aims to promote research that contributes to gendered analysis of social change; to highlight the effects of international development policy and globalization on gender roles and relations; and to encourage new approaches to international development policy and programming.

History of GPID

Our original series, MSU’s WID Working Papers (1981-2008) was among the first scholarly publications dedicated to promoting research on the links between international development and women’s and gender issues. The transition to GPID Working Papers (2008-2020) recognized diverse processes of international development and globalization, and new directions in scholarship on gender relations. In 2020, we transitioned GPID to a journal, highlighting the esteem associated with the series.
