Women Studies certificate course of 2002 was the third course organized by IWSL, the other two were held in 1999 and 2000. Keeping up with the past tradition this course was also run at South Asian level. This in turn meant getting students as well as faculty from the entire region. Given the political instability in the region and tensions between India and Pakistan that had started middle of the year 2001 it was a rather uphill task to put it together. However, owing to very hard work put in by the Institute’s staff and friends of the Institute in the academic and activist circles in other countries in the region we were able to organize it as it was envisioned.
The course started on 4th of February 2002 and finished on April 28th 2002.
