Centre for Women’s Studies

The Centre was formally launched in Feb, 2005 .Since then the Centre has been instrumental in promoting interdisciplinary research and teaching in the field of women studies with particular reference to Jammu region. It also acts as a forum for collaboration in the research and teaching of women studies both within the region and in conjunction with other institutions located outside.

It has also managed to fruitfully intervene in the growth of institutions which are working on issues relating to gender in general and women in particular.
