EJDR Special Issue launch event
Dear Colleagues and Friends of GAGE,
We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming event: Understanding adolescent vulnerabilities in LMICs through an intersectional lens.
This event will showcase a new EJDR special issue that explores adolescent experiences across diverse LMICs, including conflict-affected contexts, drawing on unique mixed-methods data from the GAGE longitudinal study. It will highlight why an intersectional approach is critical to capture adolescents’ diverse and dynamic capabilities, and what the policy and programming implications are to ensure no adolescent is left behind. Please find the flyer attached for further details.
The webinar will take place on Zoom on 5th of October at 1.00pm - 2:30pm BST (GMT+1) London time.
