Mainstreaming gender in the India-Africa partnership

This paper aims to analyse the opportunities, observations, and challenges of women-led social enterprises in India and the African region, and by exploring these ‘bright spots’ – to unpack the ways in which women in India and Africa can be enabled through mutual cooperation to compete and lead in a world that is changing dramatically. There is a case to be made for India and Africa to collaborate and expand their partnership beyond state-led interactions, and towards a greater, bottom-up synergy with an emphasised attention to gender issues.
