STRIGES Now Part of a New ITN : « Intersex: New Interdisciplinary Approaches » (INIA)
STRIGES is now part of a new Innovative Training Network : Intersex: New Interdisciplinary Approaches.
INIA is a new international research network which will train a cohort of 10 early stage researchers working collaboratively to develop knowledge that will inform policy making and practice across a range of key sectors.
The training addresses key issues for intersex wellbeing and rights, and it will develop topical applied outputs of relevance to stakeholders concerned to support the wellbeing and rights of intersex people, and intellectual resources.
Intersex people’s healthcare, social and human rights issues are often overlooked. They continue to face exposure to multiple forms of human rights violations and discrimination, requiring cross-sectoral policy responses in fields including healthcare, education, and the law.
INIA is being established by the University of Huddersfield, the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Dublin City University, the University of Zurich, the Escuela Andaluza de Salud Pública / Andalusian School of Public Health and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona in collaboration with intersex activists and advocates, clinicians, and other specialists. It will enable a consortium of 21 organisations from 10 countries to work together on issues relating to intersex people and those with variations of sex characteristics, in a unique multidisciplinary and transectoral network and it will include international experts from a wide range of countries across the globe.
The INIA project will start on 1 March 2020 and will run for 48 months. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 859869.
