Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies, ICFG
The ICFG was conceived as a comprehensive network of disciplines. As such, it bundles the gender competencies of the University of Bern and works as a competence center for inter- and transdisciplinary gender research at the interface between academia and practice.
