Amrita University has been officially identified as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) chair on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Paris.

Speaking at the event where the chair was given, Peter Wells, Chief of Higher Education Section of UNESCO, said “There is no greater force for development, resilience and peace in the world than girls’ education.”

He further added that the chair would be at the crossroads of research and action, with the ambition to develop tool kits focusing on vital areas, from skills to health to climate change, on mobile technology applications, and better mapping of vulnerabilities.

According to a release from Amrita, the first-ever UNESCO chair in the field of gender equality and women’s empowerment in India would be mapping out vulnerabilities of women and girls at various levels and from different perspectives. Through research, study, training and an exchange of best practices, it is also set to find out possible solutions, replicable by others across the world.
