Gender relations in forest societies in Asia : patriarchy at odds ( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Extrait de la couverture : "Of the numerous available studies on forest management in Asia, only a few mention the role of women or pay attention to gender relations. Even projects are largely designed in terms of households or communities where men are the decision-makers and the owners or managers of forests. This important volume views gender relations as a crucial factor in the management of land and forests, and maintains that the continuing invisibility of women in these areas only compounds poverty, shortages, and the increased workloads of forest-based women. Based on fieldwork conducted in several forest societies in China, Thailand, India and Malaysia, the contributors explore the changes in gender relations within indigenous communities, from matrilineal and/or gender egalitarian systems to ones where male domination is the norm."
International trade and global civil society by Dev Nathan ( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 84 libraries worldwide
"This book challenges the dominant anti-trade and anti-globalization stands taken by many civil society organizations, such as NGOs, trade unions and women's organizations. The authors, however, argue that instead of free trade, international trade rules need to be tailored to the stage of development of an economy." "Greater openness to trade can bring benefits of new livelihoods for women and men, new technologies and methods of production. But there is also the certainty that some livelihoods will become uncompetitive. In such cases, public policy should be re-directed away from propping up non-competitive livelihoods towards productivity - enhancing investments that can improve competitiveness. Subsidies should be directed to promote change, rather than freeze livelihoods." "Instead of lamenting the fact that trade unions, women's organizations and other organizations of small producers can no longer be effective within national boundaries, the book argues that it has become necessary for civil society organizations to see themselves as, and make themselves, global. In order to improve labour (and environmental) standards, global action is a necessary concomitant to national action. In conclusion, there is a proposed agenda for civil society to strengthen global countervailing power to capital."--BOOK JACKET.
