Re-doing research

best practices for asking about gender and sexuality in education studies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This book chapter proposes re-doing research on gender and sexuality (G&S) in education in more inclusive ways. It explains best-practice guidelines developed for a 2018 UNESCO technical brief used for advising governments and transnational survey directors on the monitoring of violence based on sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex (SOGIE) status and education sectors’ responses. It details the development of the key standard questions; points to the complications of cultural and other differences and outlines the importance of considering violence alongside more affirming topics. It argues these best practices necessarily have a shelf life and should continually be ‘re-done’ over time.
