Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals : a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Naila Kabeer brings together a set of arguments, findings and lessons from the development literature which help to explain why gender equality merits specific attention from policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders committed to the pursuit of pro-poor and human-centred development." "Neglect of gender inequalities in the distribution of resources, responsibilities and power in the processes of economic accumulation and social reproduction has a high cost, not only for women themselves but also for their children and other dependents and for the development of society as a whole. This book highlights the interconnections between production and reproduction within different societies, and women's critical role in straddling both, and points to the various synergies, trade-offs and externalities which these generate."--Jacket

Towards a new Bretton Woods : challenges for the world financial and trading system by Commonwealth Secretariat( Book )

10 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sound longer-run international economic system would not normally encounter problems as severe as those which have characterised the past few years; on the infrequent occasions when it nevertheless did, it would not impose such heavy costs upon those nations and people least able to protect themselves against externally created shocks. Prime objectives within a reformed international system must be improved stabilisation mechanisms and contracyclical policies, together with improved protection for those most affected when instabilities and shocks nevertheless persist

Women's human rights : leading international and national cases( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The last two decades have seen major advances in the legal protection of the human rights of women around the world. A series of international and national court cases has developed an important body of jurisprudence that has been relied on by courts and advocates in many countries to support women's claims for equality and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms." "Growing out of a series of judicial colloquia organised by the Commonwealth Secretariat, this compilation brings together a selection of over fifty significant cases from international and national courts. The cases are grouped by theme and presented in full text or edited format. Together they highlight the way in which courts have used international human rights norms and national constitutional standards to contribute to women's equality. A detailed introduction provides a summary of the significance of the cases and references further material available on women's human rights." "Cases decided under United Nations human rights treaties, the European and American Conventions on Human Rights and other international instruments, as well as cases decided by national courts in Asia, Africa, Europe, Australasia and North America are all included. The compilation will be of interest to all those with an interest in the advancement of the human rights of women especially equality advocates, lawyers and judges, scholars and students."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These include conflict prevention and early warning mechanisms; peace negotiations and agreements; peacekeeping, disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration; truth and reconciliation commissions; post-conflict reconstruction; and peace building and peace education." "This book will be of interest to those working to achieve gender equality, peace, democracy and sustainable development, particularly in situations of armed and other forms of conflict."--Jacket
Chains of fortune : linking women producers and workers with global markets by Commonwealth Secretariat( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited volume brings together six case studies. Three link local producers with global markets: a cocoa cooperative of 45,000 producers in Ghana who are co-owners of a chocolate company in the UK; family-based cooperatives in Samoa which produce organic virgin coconut oil for export; and small enterprises in Mozambique which are helping to regenerate the cashew processing and export industry. Three focus on improving the working conditions of the hundreds of thousands of wage workers in global value chains: those in the fruit exporting industry in South Africa; those in the garment export industry in Bangladesh; and those in the newly created call centres in India." "Each case study is written by a team of international and national researchers and aims to present decision makers with concrete examples which can spread the gains of globalization to the working poor through shifting the balance of access, power and returns within global value chains."--Jacket
