During his fellowship at the University of Minnesota, he plans to design a workable model for a ‘gender inclusive city’ that will aim to reduce crime against women in rapidly growing cities through studying international practices and initiatives that mobilize public authorities, NGOs, and the community to create a safe, non-discriminatory environment for women to gain equal footing with men. He also plans to implement similar initiatives to help overcome the gender-related human rights problems.
