Violence and activism at the border : gender, fear, and everyday life in Ciudad Juárez by Kathleen A Staudt( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1993 and 2003, more than 370 girls and women were murdered and their often-mutilated bodies dumped outside Ciudad Jur̀ez in Chihuahua, Mexico. The murders have continued at a rate of approximately thirty per year, yet law enforcement officials have made no breakthroughs in finding the perpetrator(s). Drawing on in-depth surveys, workshops, and interviews of Jur̀ez women and border activists, Violence and Activism at the Border provides crucial links between these disturbing crimes and a broader history of violence against women in Mexico. In addition, the ways in which local feminist activists used the Jur̀ez murders to create international publicity and expose police impunity provides a unique case study of social movements in the borderlands, especially as statistics reveal that the rates of femicide in Jur̀ez are actually similar to other regions of Mexico. Also examining how non-governmental organizations have responded in the face of Mexican law enforcement's "normalization" of domestic violence, Staudt's study is a landmark development in the realm of global human rights
A war that can't be won : binational perspectives on the war on drugs by Tony Payan( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than forty years have passed since President Richard Nixon described illegal drugs as ?public enemy number one? and declared a ?War on Drugs.? Recently the United Nations Global Commission on Drug Policy declared that ?the global war on drugs has failed with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world.? Arguably, no other country has suffered as much from the War on Drugs as Mexico. From 2006 to 2012 alone, at least sixty thousand people have died. Some experts have said that the actual number is more than one hundred thousand. Because the war was conceived and structured by US policymakers and officials, many commentators believe that the United States is deeply implicated in the bloodshed. A War that Can{u2019}t Be Won is the first book to include contributions from scholars on both sides of the US{u2013}Mexico border. It provides a unique breadth of perspective on the many dimensions of the societal crisis that affects residents of both nations{u2014}particularly those who live and work in the borderlands. It also proposes practical steps toward solving a crisis that shows no signs of abating under current policies. Each chapter is based on well-documented data, including previously unavailable evidence that was obtained through freedom-of-information inquiries in Mexico. By bringing together views from both sides of the border, as well as from various academic disciplines, this volume offers a much wider view of a complex problem{u2014}and possible solutions
Women and the state in Africa by Jane L Parpart( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, African women have had a different relationship to the state than have men. While women in certain classes and ethnic groups may have had a greater access to the state, in general women have been under-represented in African state affairs. In precolonial Africa, a few societies awarded women some power, although even this tended to be informal rather than authoritative. But during the colonial period, western gender stereotypes combined with patriarchal traditions to reduce female power and autonomy. Despite women's active and important role in the nationalist struggles, decolonization has been primarily a transfer of power from one group of men to another. Many women have reacted to this inequity by withdrawing from the state. Others have sought solutions such as working through influential men, joining organizations, and gaining better education and employment. Increasingly, women from all walks of life are becoming aware of and dissatisfied with sexual injustice in Africa. This renewed activism is all the more important because it is occurring when many African states have been in decline, thus reducing the power of those who benefit from the state, namely men. Women's reproductive and productive labor is ever more important. It is possible, therefore, that women will be able to parlay their pivotal role in the current crisis into a more active part in state affairs

Social justice in the U.S.-Mexico border region by Mark W Lusk( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S.-Mexico Border Region is among the poorest geographical areas in the United States. The region has been long characterized by dual development, poor infrastructure, weak schools, health disparities and low-wage employment. More recently, the region has been affected by the violence associated with a drug and crime war in Mexico. The premise of this book is that the U.S.-Mexico Border Region is subject to systematic oppression and that the so-called social pathologies that we see in the region are by-products of social and economic injustice in the form of labor exploitation, environmental racism, immigration militarism, institutional sexism and discrimination, health inequities, a political economy based on low-wage labor, and the globalization of labor and capital. The chapters address a variety of examples of injustice in the areas of environment, health disparity, migration unemployment, citizenship, women and gender violence, mental health, and drug violence. The book proposes a pathway to development
Human rights along the U.S.-Mexico border : gendered violence and insecurity( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much political oratory has been given to safeguarding America's boundary with Mexico, but policies that militarize the border and criminalize immigrants have overshadowed the region's widespread violence against women, the increase in crossing deaths, and lingering poverty that spurs people to set out on dangerous northward treks. This book addresses those concerns by focusing on gender-based violence, security, and human rights from perspective of women who live with both violence and poverty. From Pacific to Gulf of Mexico, scholars from both sides of the 2,000-mile border reflect expertise in disciplines ranging from international relations to criminal justice, conveying a more complex picture of the region than that presented in other studies. Initial chapters offer an overview of routine sexual assaults on women migrants, harassment of Central American immigrants by authorities and residents, corruption and counterfeiting along the border, and near-death experiences of border crossers. More chapters connect analysis with solutions in the form of institutional change, social movement activism, policy reform, and spread of international norms that respect human rights and good governance. These chapters show how all facets of border situation including globalization, NAFTA, economic inequality, organized crime, political corruption, and rampant patriarchy promote gendered violence and expressions of hyper-masculinity. They also show that U.S. immigration policy exacerbates problems of border violence. By focusing on women's everyday experiences in order to understand human security issues, these contributions offer broad-based alternative approaches and solutions that address everyday violence and inattention to public safety, inequalities, poverty, and human rights--Publisher's description

18 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the center of the 2,000 mile U.S.-Mexico border, a sprawling transnational urban space has mushroomed into a metropolitan region with over two million people whose livelihoods depend on global manufacturing, cross-border trade, and border control jobs. Our volume advances knowledge on urban space, gender, education, security, and work, focusing on Ciudad Jur̀ez, the export-processing (maquiladora) manufacturing capital of the Americas and the infamous site of femicide and outlier murder rates connected with arms and drug trafficking. Given global economic trends, this transnational urban region is a likely paradigmatic future for other world regions"--Provided by publisher

Here is an insightful volume on the integration of women in the modernization process of developing countries, with research studies on women and development in Guatemala, Tanzania, Indonesia, and several other countries. Drawing from theory and practice, authorities examine how development in any kind of economy marginalizes women, illustrate the existence of a feminist awareness among impoverished rural women, demonstrate the importance of understanding the policy and program implementation institutions within which any transition toward more women-sensitive change is to occur, and suggest the kind of research that would be useful and credible to policymakers. -- Publisher description
