Reversed realities : gender hierarchies in development thought by Naila Kabeer( Book )

31 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A dynamic reassessment of development theory with a focus on gender, this book examines alternative frameworks for analyzing gender hierarchies; identifies the household as the primary site for the construction of power relations; assesses the inadequacy of the poverty line as a measuring tool; and provides a critical overview of population control
Inclusive citizenship : meanings and expressions( Book )

19 editions published between 1462 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inclusive Citizenship seeks to go beyond the intellectual debates of recent years on democratization and participation to explore a related set of issues around changing conceptions of citizenship. People's understandings of what it means to be a citizen go to the heart of the various meanings of identity, including national identity; political and electoral participation; and rights. The researchers in this volume come from a wide variety of societies, including the industrial countries in the North, and they seek to explore these difficult questions from various angles."--Jacket

The power to choose : Bangladeshi women and labour market decisions in London and Dhaka by Naila Kabeer( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Naila Kebeer examines the lives of Bangladeshi garment workers to shed light on the question of what constitutes 'fair' competition in international trade. While Bangladesh is generally considered a poor, conservative Muslim country, with a long tradition of female seclusion, women here have entered factories to take their place as a prominent, first-generation, industrial labour force. In Britain, on the other hand, a supposedly modern and secular society with a long tradition of female employment, Bangladeshi women are largely concentrated in home-based piecework for the garment industry."--Jacket
Gender mainstreaming in poverty eradication and the millennium development goals : a handbook for policy-makers and other stakeholders by Naila Kabeer( Book )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and French and held by 246 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
Global perspectives on gender equality : reversing the gaze( Book )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nordic countries have long been seen as pioneers in promoting gender equality. This book brings together scholars from the global South and post-socialist economies to explore from a comparative perspective the vision, values, policies, mechanisms, and political processes that help to explain Nordic achievements on gender equality
Mainstreaming gender in social protection for the informal economy by Naila Kabeer( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book will enhance understanding of the constraints and barriers that confine women to more poorly remunerated, more casual and more insecure forms of waged and self-employment, and of what this implies for women's ability to provide for their families and cope with insecurity. Kabeer develops a framework of analysis that integrates gender, life course and livelihoods perspectives in order to explore the interactions between gender inequality, household poverty and labour market forces that help to produce gender-differentiated experiences of risk and vulnerability for the working poor. She then examines and assesses examples of social protection measures in order to illustrate the necessity for a gender-analytical approach. She also stresses the importance of an organised voice for vulnerable and marginalised workers."--Jacket
Organizing women workers in the informal economy : beyond the weapons of the weak by Naila Kabeer( Book )

17 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organizing Women Workers in the Informal Economy explores the emergence of an alternative repertoire among women working in the growing informal sectors of the global South: the weapons of organization and mobilization. This crucial book offers vibrant accounts of how women working on farms, as sex workers, maids, and waste pickers, in fisheries and factories, have come together to carve out new identities for themselves, define what matters to them, and develop collective strategies of resistence and struggle. -- Book Jacket
Social protection as development policy : Asian perspectives by Sarah Cook( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerned that in the pre-2008 growth scenario, there was a danger that the lessons of the Asian crisis of the late 1990s would be forgotten, this volume underscores the need for policy makers to see social protection not only as a response to risk and crisis, but to integrate it into the mainstream development agenda in order to create trajectories out of poverty and vulnerability. Significantly, taking into account both deeply entrenched forms of poverty and social exclusion as well as new forms of vulnerability being created in the process of rapid growth and globalisation, it also cautions against a one-size-fits-all approach to social protection. --Book Jacket

Triple roles, gender roles, social relations : the political subtext of gender training by Naila Kabeer( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait de la page de titre : "The study of pasr polica failures to take account of women's needs and interests has generated a body of knowledge from which to shape better practice in the future. One means by which these lessons are disseminated is gender training and these has been a proliferation of methodologies by which this is being carried out. Most current efforts at gender training share a common objective in challenging biases in the planning process by alerting planners to gender divisions in resources and responsabilities. However, they vary in terms of their worldviews and their visions of gender equity. This paper examines three different training frameworks based on gender roles, women's triple roles and the social relations of gender in order to draw out how differences in their implicit worldviews affect their treatement of efficiency and equity issues. the paper concludes by arguing for training frameworks that move beyond static notions of effciency that encourage critical self-examination by planners of their own institutional practices ; and that incorporate a transformative politics which is premised on women's self-empowerment."

Women's control over economic resources and access to financial resources, including microfinance : 2009 world survey on the role of women in development by United Nations( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ensuring women's economic empowerment and access to and control over resources requires an integrated approach to growth and development, focused on gender-responsive employment promotion and informed by the interdependency between economic and social development. Social objectives need to be incorporated into economic policies. Economic growth strategies should give attention to the real economy and focus on creating a gender-sensitive macroeconomic environment, full employment and decent work, access to land, property and other productive resources as well as financial services, and full coverage of social protection measures. The survey outlines a number of concrete recommendations in these critical areas, which if adopted, will facilitate women's equitable access to and control over economic and financial resources.--Publisher's description

Deprivation, discrimination and delivery : competing explanations for child labour and educational failure in South Asia by Naila Kabeer( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The high incidence of both child labour and out-of-school children in the South Asian region has given rise to competing explanations. Broadly speaking, these can be categorised as those which focus on poverty and under-development and those which focus on policy failure and poor implementation of educational services. This paper reviews the empirical evidence put forward for each of these explanations, focusing primarily on India and Bangladesh, and concludes that they mutually reinforce, rather than contradict, each other. It is evident that the design of educational services as far as their norms, content and procedures are concerned discriminates against precisely those children who are at the greatest geographical, social and economic disadvantage. It is those governments at national and local level who have demonstrated the greatest commitment to countering these biases who have managed to make the greatest progress, regardless of the incidence of poverty. There are clearly important lessons to be learnt from their efforts. However, in the absence of changes in the broader policy climate, the paper identifies a number of programmatic interventions which might achieve similar results but at the micro-level and in the short-run
