Gender equality--striving for justice in an unequal world by Urvashi Butalia( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and German and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait du site www.unrisd.org : "Based on the findings of UNRISD ongoing gender research and over 60 specially commissioned studies, the report's analysis is centred on the economic and political reforms of the 1990s. If most of these reforms did not directly address gender equality, they nevertheless received considerable scrutiny from a gender perspective. And whatever their intentions, they had significant and mixed implications for gender relations and women's well-being. As its title alludes, achieving gender equality and gender justice will be very difficult in a world that is increasingly unequal. The report presents strong arguments for why gender equality must be placed at the core of efforts to reorient the development agenda. Indeed, if some of the key contemporary challenges (economic growth and structural transformation, equality and social protection, and democratization) are to be met, this is essential."

The United Nations and civil society : legitimating global governance--whose voice? by Nora McKeon( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The UN is able to recognize key global challenges but is beset by difficulties in trying to resolve them. It represents the current global political balance but is also the only international institution that can move it forward. Civil society can be a catalyst for this kind of change. In this book, Nora McKeon provides a comprehensive analysis of UN engagement with civil society. The book pays particular attention to food and agriculture, which now lie at the heart of global governance issues. McKeon shows that politically meaningful space for civil society can be introduced into UN policy dialogue. The United Nations and Civil Society also makes the case that it is only by engaging with organizations which legitimately speak for the 'poor' that the UN can promote equitable, sustainable development and build global democracy from the ground up. This book has strong ramifications for global governance, civil society and social movements, as well as for the contemporary debate over the future of food."--BOOK JACKET

Social policy in the Middle East : economic, political, and gender dynamics( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Countries of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), like other developing countries, are being transformed under the forces of globalization. The old economic models and strategies have been questioned and largely abandoned. New socio-economic relations are being forged, but no coherent vision and strategy of development is yet in place. Since the 1980s, and in the co-called post oil-boom era, most countries in the region have been facing a crisis of integration in the global economy. In the large and growing literature on economic reforming the MENA region, social policy has often taken a back seat. It is treated as a residual, or an afterthought to economic reform, in the shape of safety nets or safeguards to reintegrate the marginalized groups who are dislocated by the reform process. In contrast, this book shows that gender-sensitive social policy is likely to play a critical role both in the resolution of social conflicts during the present transition period, and in the formation and long-term functioning of the new economic systems that are taking shape. This volume brings 'social' back as a central theme in the analysis of economic reform in the MENA region."--Jacket

Staking their claims : corporate social and environmental responsibility in South Africa( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How responsive are South African corporations to their social and environmental responsibilities? Given the extremes of economic inequality, is business generally proactive in redressing the legacy of apartheid, or does it only respond to regulation?These are among the questions treated in this new volume, based on research conducted for a UN project. It breaks new ground in emerging from a tradition of applied social science rather than industrial sponsorship. It is therefore free to ask and answer questions not usually raised in the debates about corporate behaviour."Staking Their Claims" presents sectoral studies on the chemical, mining and food industries. It also examines crosscutting issues such as the response of business to black economic empowerment and the AIDS pandemic. The book provides vital insights for corporate leaders, business schools, social analysts, investors, and those in the field of corporate social and environmental responsibility
