The third edition of Difficult Dialogues forum, an annual conference tackling the most vital issues facing South Asia, will focus on the question 'Gender Equality For Everyone's Benefit?' The three day event will see leading experts, policy makers and world famous stars and personalities gather in Goa to examine wide-ranging topics under the overarching theme of gender and come up with white papers directed at making a tangible difference.

This year, the forum will be held in partnership with UCL (University College London), Goa University (GU) and the International Centre Goa (ICG). Renowned professors of global health such as Professor Sarah Hawkes who leads the UCL Centre for Global Health and Gender, Professor David Osrin of UCL and Professor of Global Health and Philosophy Sridhar Venkatapuram of King's College London will be amongst the speakers at the conference. UK Politician and Teacher Baroness Shreela Flather and actress Gabriella Wright will also be present. Through engaging panel discussions, the speakers will grapple with the crucial issue of how Indian gender constructs affect fundamental aspects of daily lives and citizenship.

Professor Sarah Hawkes (UCL Institute for Global Health) said, "Our interest in gender and equality at UCL goes back over 150 years the university was founded on a basis of equality of opportunity and was the first in England to teach men and women together in the same classroom, and the first to award degrees to women on an equal basis with men. We are delighted to be working with partners in Difficult Dialogues who share UCL's commitment to promoting social justice and tackling inequality across the globe."More UNI AKM 2026
