Designed as a comprehensive curriculum on sexuality, sexual and reproductive health and rights with in-depth discussions on the linkages between research and practice, the CSBR Sexuality Institute offers a holistic interdisciplinary program combining history, theory, research and politics of sexuality with applications of advocacy and fieldwork.

Each CSBR Sexuality Institute brings together about 25 leading sexual and reproductive rights activists, academics and researchers for a six-day training comprised of lectures, group work, round-tables, panels, site visits and film screenings, all bolstered by participants’ own experiences around sexuality & sexual rights advocacy.

  • Costs: The cost of tuition is USD 100 for all participants.
    A limited number of scholarships to cover international travel & attendance costs are available for participants from smaller organizations based in the Global South.
