Senior Gender Convenor and BRIDGE manager at IDS. She is a social anthropologist by training. Her specialist area is gender and migration, with a focus on South East Asia - particularly Thailand.

Alyson has worked in the non-governmental sector in Thailand, focusing on women's and children's rights issues in the Mekong region. Other roles include Programme and Communications Coordinator for Imp-Act, a research programme with the aim of improving the impacts of microfinance in developing countries.

Four years on from Irish Aid's landmark Hunger Task Force Report, hunger reduction remains an enormous challenge. This will become more difficult in the context of resource scarcity, climate change, and an increased demand for food in the emerging economies.

Our goal is to enable stronger leadership for working with boys and men to promote gender equality. We will do this by gathering, inter-relating and analysing evidence and lessons. These will be strategically disseminated in targeted and accessible formats for improved learning, policy and practice.
