Networks

GPRG members are involved with several research networks, groups, and professional associations.

Fiona Mackay and Meryl Kenny are co-directors of an international collaborative theory-building project, the Feminism and Institutionalism International Network (FIIN). FIIN is a group of more than forty feminist scholars from Europe, North America and Asia Pacific who have come together to explore the interplay between feminist approaches to gendered institutions and new institutional theory.

Meryl Kenny is the current Co-Convenor of the UK Political Studies Association's Women and Politics Specialist Group. The group provides a focus for PSA members, women and men, whose research is concerned with women or gender. It is also a resource for women in the PSA that has a commitment to encourage the presence and visibility in the PSA and the discipline, while combating sexism. The PSA Women and Politics Group was awarded the inaugural Specialist Group of the Year prize at the 2014 PSA Annual Conference. 

Other professional associations that GPRG members are involved with include:

Angela Merkel and Barack Obama
