Message from the Chair I am very pleased to share that our Commission will, as usual, take an active part in the upcoming IGU conference in August 2013. Our sessions planned for the IGU Kyoto Regional Conference received more abstracts that we could accommodate! Taking into account the two sessions we are co-organising with the History Commission, we will have a total of 10 sessions and 1 panel discussion. While the deadline for submitting abstracts for Kyoto is over, the good news is that the deadline for submission of abstracts for the IGU Gender Commission’s Pre-conference in Nara has been extended to 24th May 2013. Details have been posted on the Commission’s listserv. I hope to meet some of you in Kyoto and/or Nara.”

Honoring Elisabeth Bühler
On March 26, colleagues at the University of Zürich honored Elisabeth Bühler on her retirement after 35 years in the Geography Institute. They noted her critical and thoughtful contributions in teaching and research, pioneering work in laying the foundations for gender studies. Among Elisabeth’s many projects are those that reach beyond the academy, notably the atlases of women and equality in Switzerland, first published in German ( (Frauen-und Gleichstellungatlas Schweiz, Seismo, Zurich, 2001), subsequently in French, and issued in an updated online edition (2005) by the Swiss Federal Office of Statistics. An interview with Elisabeth by Pascal Goeke titled “Dissidente Partizipation: Elisabeth Bühler und die Geschlechterforschung in der Schweiz” will be published in the next issue of Geographica Helvetica. Elisabeth continues to serve as a valued member of the steering committee of the IGU Commission on Gender and Geography. She is remembered especially for the conference she hosted for the Commission in Zurich in 2007 and the subsequent issue of Geographica Helvetica on “Public Spaces and Social Diversity.” Colleagues from many countries sent cards honoring Elisabeth that were displayed at the reception celebrating her career. Elisabeth will continue her support for the Commission during her participation in the Congress in Japan, 2013.

Diane Richardson, Nina Laurie, Meena Poudel and Janet Townsend (UK)
have conducted a project (Ist November 2009 to 30th April 2012-11-23) on “Post Trafficking Livelihoods in Nepal: Women, Sexuality and Citizenship.” Details are available at www.posttraffickingnepal.co.uk/
The research examines livelihood opportunities of sexually trafficked women on return to their home country, Nepal, a topic that has received little study nor how the issues intersect with development agendas. Drawing on knowledge grounded in experiences of returnee trafficked women, they have explored the intersections of sexuality, gender and citizenship in returnee women’s livelihood strategies as new democratic processes, supported by national and transnational communities, unfold. The project included 46 interviews with returnee trafficked women in Kathmandu and provincial/rural sites identified by government for high occurrences of trafficking. Professionalisation proved an important issue for anti-trafficking groups, so a sub set of these interviews (9) were with returnee trafficked women involved as activists in anti-trafficking. A further 15 stakeholder interviews with activists, key personnel in NGOs and government were performed. They have analysed discourses and emerging policies on trafficking and citizenship in Nepal, and tracked the evolution of debates in the Constituent Assembly, convened in 2008 to draft a new constitution.
