The Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies is a centre of excellence for Gender Studies at the University of Berne. The ICFG functions as an interdisciplinary network and cross-faculty institute. Gender Studies at the University of Berne touches upon numerous disciplines and multifaceted thematic fields. The ICFG brings this diversity to the fore.

Our activities emphasise the gender dimensions of globalization, human rights, sustainable development and governance as well as feminist movements in a transnational and transcultural perspective. Over the past years the ICFG has taken on advisory tasks and mandates in these thematic areas on various occasions.
