Description: The interest and relevancy of this Doctoral Programme is justified according to scientific, academic, social and legal and of equality policy. Academically, the closest antecedent of research training is found within the Master’s Degree in Genre and Equality Policy which is nowadays taught in the IUED. This Master’s Degree has a mixed nature: researcher and professional. The research pathway of the Master’s Degree is expressly designed for its continuity in the Doctoral Studies. Evidence of it are, on the one hand, the 16 ECTS credits devoted to the research technics and to the thereof introduction “Research Technics: Epistemological Options and Methodologies from a Feminist Viewpoint” (10 ECTS) and “Induction to Research” (6 ECTS). On the other hand, the elaboration of the Master’s Degree Final Project as a research work. However, from the professional pathway, and once having studied the research credits, you may accede to the Doctoral Programme. This way, gender-based research and its application to different spheres of knowledge is encouraged.
