Dr Srija Basu

research scholar

As a gender researcher and social scientist, I find it imperative to assess past as well as current scenarios that shape development perspectives and policy measures in the context of gender issues, environmental sustainability and climate change in ground realities. I am deeply interested in engaging with research themes around finance, development initiatives, adaptation and socio-economic vulnerabilities, gender equity in rural economies in specific contexts of society and culture.

My doctoral research on South Asia and Africa as a comparative study covered vital grounds on gender equity, rights to economic assets, land-based livelihoods and ideas of citizenship that define disadvantaged communities particularly women.
My studentship at SOAS, London led me to a strong research background on gender and development in Asia, Africa and the Middle East from a theoretical and practical perspective.

Currently, I am researching on issues pertaining to gender, livelihoods and policies in rural economies in the Global South.
