Women's Health and Welfare – Inequality of Opportunity, Norms and Possibilities for Change

This project focuses on women’s health and welfare in developing countries. We investigate the persistence and determinants of a number of women hurting customs, such as early marriage, teen-age fertility, intimate partner violence and female genital cutting, and the effectiveness of policy interventions to change the relevant norms and behaviors.

International cooperation

Visiting researchers

Collaborating with others is essential for IFN as a research institute. Our researchers co-author articles with colleagues from other institutes, and many also teach at various universities and colleges.

As part of our extensive program of guest researchers, leading international researchers visit the institute. The visitors present and pursue their research as well as interact and cooperate with researchers at IFN.
