  1. 1. Looking into the black box: The roles of development workers in enhancing climate resilience and gender equality for ethnic minority women through the EmPower project in Vietnam

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för globala studier

    Author : Hong Hanh Nguyen; [2022-01-18]
    Keywords : feminist political ecology; development workers; climate change; gender equality; ethnic minorities; Vietnam;

    Abstract : The climate change-gender nexus has increasingly become the arena in which adaptation interventions take place. One such intervention is the EmPower program in the Asia-Pacific region by UN Women and UNEP. This research is a case study on how one program component on women’s renewable energy entrepreneurship is implemented in Vietnam. READ MORE

  2. 2. Measuring natural hemispheric asymmetry in the brain: quantifying the Yakovlevian torque phenomenon

    University essay from

    Author : Hannah Moeini; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; cerebral asymmetry; yakovlevian torque; petalia occipital bending;

    Abstract : Background: Just by a cursory examination, the two hemispheres of the human brain may appear as mirror images of one another. Yet, the left and right sides exhibit profound differences in anatomy. One of the most obvious expressions of hemispheric asymmetry is the counterclockwise rotation of the brain known as “Yakovlevian torque”. READ MORE
