Greetings to all recipients of Iran Academia's newsletter. In this up-to-date newsletter, we bring you the latest news and upcoming events.
Academia Tour Kicks Off! 🌍
Our newly initiated project is called Academia Tour. We travel to Europe's universities and cultural centers to have enlightening dialogues with Persian speaking scholars, researchers and intellectuals. The first season of the Academia Tour, organized by the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities (Iran Academia), will journey through Brussels, Prague, and Paris. Persian speaking residents or the cities we travel to are welcomed to engage in enlightening dialogues with our esteemed host, Dr. Touraj Atabaki, and distinguished guests by registering to attend in person. The recorded and post-produced video will be published later in Agora (Iran Academia Multimedia website). For more details and registration, check out the Academia Tour event page accessible here.
Gender and Budgeting: A New Approach 📊
Our upcoming MOOC course is about the implications of public budgets on gender equality. The participants of this course will learn about the tenets of Gender Responsive Budgeting and how it transcends mere financial divisions between genders. They understand the nuances of Gender Mainstreaming and dive into tools that ensure budgeting fairness. This course is a must-attend for those championing gender equality.
