Feminist Approaches to ‘Localization’
February 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Oxfam Canada is on a journey to apply a feminist approach to all its work – both in terms of outcomes and ways of working. Applying feminist principles requires us to rethink current ways of working in the international aid sector. This session will unpack how ‘localization’ is part and parcel of an intersectional feminist approach. Drawing on its interviews with local women’s rights actors working across the humanitarian-development-peace nexus, and on its experience supporting the leadership of local women’s rights organizations in its international programming, Oxfam will share reflections and lessons learned on this crucial topic.
