Legal landscapes: laws impacting gender and sexuality education research

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


    Research of gender and sexuality (G&S) education is impacted by multiple and conflicting legal landscapes carrying different risks and duties. This chapter argues that since researchers have an international reach—exploring both international and domestic G&S education issues and contexts— research training focusing solely on local treatments of G&S education research issues may leave future researchers sorely under-prepared for the contexts in which they may study. This book chapter discusses relevant international human rights legislation provisions, national and laws and education policies on G&S education issues to help researchers considering the direction of their work.
