Gender for Excellence in Research (GenderEX) is a three-year project designed to build networks, exchange knowledge and engage best practices to stimulate the integration of the Sex and Gender Dimension in Research Content (SGDRC) in the widening country of Turkey assisted by internationally-leading counterparts in Ireland, Italy, and Sweden. Gender dimension has all too often been overlooked in many scientific areas, sex/gender analysis is an indispensable means to innovate and drive excellence in research and tackle societal challenges. Research that ignores gender interactions is often incomplete and/or biased research, which leads to the formulation of inadequate policies, programs, theories, and outcomes. Gender studies, as a field, is not yet well established in Turkey and a sex and gender dimension is not often integrated into research content. As such for Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) interested in gender studies and gender methodologies, there are few opportunities in Turkey to develop their research skills and capacity. According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report (2018), Turkey ranks 130 out of 149 and is in urgent need of advancing gender equality. Researchers’ can play a vital role in identifying the structures and producing solutions that will enhance Turkey's advancement toward gender equality. The project seeks to build upon and further develop Kadir Has University (KHAS) with its Gender and Women’s Studies Research Center (GWSRC-KHAS) as a site of research excellence in the field of gender research. The overall aim of GenderEX is to further the adoption of SGDRC across multiple scientific disciplines in Turkey and beyond by enhancing the capacity of GWSRC-KHAS for training and engaging more researchers into this field.
