The Danida (FFU) funded project Imagining Gender Futures in Uganda (IMAGENU) runs 4 years and started up 01.10.2018. Partner institutions are University of Copenhagen and Gulu University, Uganda. The project IMAGENU will provide a new perspective on gender and futures by placing marriage in Uganda and its decline at the centre, showing how this most fundamental gender relation implicates the filiation of children, livelihoods, education, health and people’s imaginations, expectations and hopes for the future.

The overall purpose of this project is to enhance research capacity by generating new knowledge about how changing patterns of gender partnerships relate to child filiation, livelihood, education, and reproductive and mental health. This will contribute to the development of relevant social gender policies, and create debate in the wider public.
