In 1993, Dr. Parto Teherani-Krönner established the working area „Women and Gender Studies in Rural Areas“ at the Faculty of Agriculture and Horticulture of the Humboldt University. Focal themes are gender arrangements by country comparison (in particular related to the Islamic cultural area), environmental management, gender issues related to access to resources, nutrition policy, cooperation of women in rural areas and methods of gender analysis.

P. Teherani-Krönner has gained empirical experiences in Germany (agrarian and environmental policy) and through research visits in Sudan, Iran and especially the Caspian Region (in Mazandaran and Gilan).
