New Article by CGDS Director

CGDS is pleased to announce that the latest article by Dr. Choman Hardi, Director of the Center for Gender Development and Studies, and a Co-Director of the UKRI GCRF Gender, Justice and Security Hub has been published by the London School of Economics (LSE) website. The article addresses the importance of poetry for the marginalised voices of women, stateless peoples, and survivors of mass violence. On challenging the status quo, Dr. Hardi writes: "As a poet, I believe it is my duty to ruin the façade of normality and fairness that prevails. The status quo is full of injustice and inequality, full of voices that are shut out because we want to move on from the past and we no longer want to hear its stories. It is full of injustice towards women who are regularly killed, silenced, and disrespected. We need to problematise normality and bring to the centre what is usually relegated to the margin."
