|Samenvatting||This conference aimed to interrogate the kinds of gender knowledge being produced and used in the contemporary South Asia context, and the effects these are having. The conference was organised into three main themes: gender(ed) knowledge; gender researchers, trainers and advocates; and building capacity on gender - ways forward. This report attempts to collect together and highlight recurrent issues that were raised, discusses and re-raised in relation to these themes. It is divided into three main sections. The first section discusses the challenges and opportunities offered by current social and political contexts in the region. The second elaborates on strategies for linking actors and sites of gender knowledge production and communication work. The third investigates some 'new' areas which may be brought to bear on the process of making gender knowledge work for gender equality objectives.|
