about this item

As Raewyn Connell states in her Foreword, 'this Handbook plunges us straight into some of the most disturbing and important issues of our time. Global injustice and violence; the nature of care and love; new forms of power and resistance; the politics of knowledge and the politics of sexuality; survival on an injured planet – all feature in the book'. Guided by Wendy Harcourt's experience of over 20 years in gender and development processes, this exciting and dynamic collection of essays presents a multifaceted dialogue that connects diverse feminist locations, generations and disciplines. The Handbook features feminist scholars and activists who have critically influenced feminist analyses, strategies and visions in gender and development discourse. The contributions encourage readers to go beyond mainstream development institutional discourse and look at how feminist practice and vision (whether in international relations, political ecology or social movements) shape development policy and studies.
