KANITA’s core businesses are research and postgraduate programmes. In research, the aim is to conduct inter and transdisciplinary research in critical areas of women’s and gender issues and to utilise the findings for social transformation advocacy activities.  Research findings are not only meant to have policy impact but are also aimed at stimulating intellectual and public discourses on women’s and gender issues. This fits well with USM’s emphasis on the importance of university to be engaged with the community and not remain aloof as an ivory tower. Thus, research and dissemination of findings are often done in collaboration with government and non-government organisations outside the university. KANITA has conducted research in several areas that have largely been neglected in academic considerations for research in Malaysia. It has studied the issues of domestic violence, sexual harassment, child marriage, women’s economic empowerment, Muslim family law and masculinity. KANITA will continue to conduct research in important and emerging areas related to women and gender.  KANITA also plans to widen the scope of its studies to more regional and international research sites.
