The Sexuality & Rights Institute

The Sexuality and Rights Institute, was an annual two week long residential course in collaboration with CREA. The Institute examined the links between sexuality and rights and their interface with the related fields of gender and health with a focus on the conceptual study of sexuality.

It aimed to develop the analytical skills of participants to critically examine how various strategies and practices in the field of sexual and reproductive health affirm or violate rights. Participants examined sexual and reproductive health programmes as well as various legal and socio-cultural issues. Throughout the course, participants were encouraged to question the assumptions on which they base their work and theorising. 

National and international faculty taught the course using different pedagogical methods. These methods were reading assignments, classroom instruction, group work, case studies, simulation exercises, fictional reading and films.
