Michigan State University invites the submission of article-length manuscripts (6,000 - 9,000 words) for peer review and publication in their GPID Working Papers series.

The goals of GPID are: (1) to promote research that contributes to gendered analysis of social change, (2) to highlight the effects of international development policy and globalization on gender roles and gender relations, and (3) to encourage new approaches to international development policy and programming.
