Next Week At Johns Hopkins SAIS: April 10-14

Johns Hopkins SAIS hosts hundreds of events each year, many of which are free and open to the public. Offering a wide spectrum of viewpoints on current global issues, these events give students the opportunity to interact with thought leaders in various industries. While many of these events are exclusive to Johns Hopkins SAIS students and alumni, a number are free and open to the public. We invite you to join us for some of the events below.

Copies of the report are available to conference attendees.
Friday, April 14
The landscape of political economies across Africa continue to change as women, and other historically marginalized populations, seek greater access to markets, state resources, and power within the state-society terrain. This conference will explore the power of gender in shaping (re)distributive priorities within the state, which remain wide-ranging across questions of political power and access to material resources.
The conference agenda examines opportunities and challenges regarding women’s access to resources, as well as their capacity to affect distribution. Panelists will explore these issues within civil society, through women’s political participation and policy making, and in the forms of political alliances that condition women’s access to power.
