Gender in Third World politics by Georgina Waylen( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This gendered analysis of Third World politics examines both 'high politics' and political activity at the grassroots level, as well as the impact of state policy on differing groups of women. Waylen first discusses the major theoretical questions involved in the study of gender in Third World politics. She then discusses the topic in the context of colonialism, revolution, authoritarianism, and democratization, richly illustrating her discussion with a broad range of examples. Engaging and original, the book is ideal for use in Third World politics, women and politics, and gender and development courses."--Jacket
Engendering transitions : women's mobilization, institutions, and gender outcomes by Georgina Waylen( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What has been the impact of transitions to democracy on gender relations? What roles have women's mobilizations played in processes of democratization? In a new and over-arching thematic analysis, Engendering Transitions answers these questions by comparing the transitions from state socialism and authoritarianism that took place as part of the "third wave" of democratization that swept the world from the mid 1970s onwards. Using empirical material drawn from eight case study countries in East Central Europe and Latin America as well as South Africa, Georgina Waylen explores the gendered constraints and opportunities provided by processes of democratization and economic restructuring. This book uses a sophisticated analytical framework that brings together the analysis of key actors and institutions and shows that, under certain conditions, transitions to democracy can result in some positive gender outcomes such as improvements in women's political representation and more 'gender sensitive' policy in areas such as domestic violence. Georgina Waylen argues that women's mobilization during transitions is no guarantee of success and change is easier to achieve in some areas than others. Understanding the roles that can be played by organized women's movements, key actors and the wider political environment is crucial in helping us to explain why these gender outcomes vary in different contexts. This book addresses important debates within the study of both comparative politics and gender and politics and substantially improves our understanding of the ways in which transitions to democracy are gendered."--Book cover
The Oxford handbook of gender and politics by Georgina Waylen( Book )

26 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a field of scholarship, gender and politics has exploded over the last fifty years and is now global, institutionalized, and ever expanding. The Oxford Handbook of Gender and Politics brings to political science an accessible and comprehensive overview of the key contributions of gender scholars to the study of politics and shows how these contributions produce a richer understanding of polities and societies. Like the field it represents, the handbook has a broad understanding of what counts as political and is based on a notion of gender that highlights masculinities as well as femininities, thereby moving feminist debates in politics beyond the focus on women. It engages with some of the key aspects of political science as well as important themes in gender and feminist research (such as sexuality and body politics), thereby forging a dialogue between gender studies in politics and mainstream political science. The handbook is organized in sections that look at sexuality and body politics; political economy; civil society; participation, representation and policymaking; institutions, states and governance as well as nation, citizenship and identity. The Oxford Handbook of Gender and Politics contains and reflects the best scholarship in its field."--Publisher's website
Global governance : feminist perspectives by Shirin Rai( Book )

21 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How are global institutions gendered? Do they play a role in continuing global inequality? Can anything be done to change them? In the first comprehensive study of global governance from a feminist perspective, this collection gathers together an exemplary line-up of internationally-renowned scholars to provide a theoretically-informed and empirically-based analysis of both the institutions of global governance and the attempts to transform them." "Bringing together interdisciplinary and multi-level analyses of global governance within a coherent theoretical framework, this volume demonstrates the diversity and breadth within feminist approaches, including case studies from institutions such as the International Criminal Court and the World Bank, as well as regional organisations, such as the EU, and covering an array of policy areas including security, trade, agriculture and macroeconomics. This book provides an invaluable addition to the literature on global governance and will be essential reading for all those who study it."--Jacket
Towards a gendered political economy( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection sets out how a gendered approach to political economy can help us understand the inherently gendered structure that characterize our society, and provide the foundation for a truly interdisciplinary social science. It provides a comprehensive coverage of gendered political economy - what it is, where it is and, perhaps more importantly, how it should develop." "The twelve chapters that make up this book combine the development of a theoretical framework with empirical examples illustrations the core concerns of gendered political economy. They show how applying a gendered analysis can improve our understanding of social, political and economic structures, and the way in which individuals behave within these structures."--Jacket
Gender, institutions, and change in Bachelet's Chile by Georgina Waylen( )

14 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michelle Bachelet, Chile's first female president, was elected in 2006 with an explicit gender agenda, promising to appoint new faces (including women) to her government and implement some positive gender change. After a period as the first head of UN Women, she was subsequently reelected for a second term in 2013 with a decisive majority. This volume focuses on Bachelet's efforts in both her first and second administrations to introduce progressive measures in Chile and the constraints that she has faced in a context where both formal and informal political institutions can act as barriers to change. Written by leading experts in the field, the chapters highlight both the successes of Bachelet's governments and also the key battles that Bachelet faced, for example with regard to reproductive rights, electoral reform, and social protection"--

International political economy, development and gender by Georgina Waylen( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article argues that, in a globalising world increasingly shaped by processes of restructuring, it is essential to have a gendered international political economy (GIPE) with which to understand this changing world. Until now, there has been a tendency to separate the analysis of gender issues related to Third World countries from those of the more industrialised world. But, as the globalisation of economic relations proceeds, the need to understand the role of gender from a global perspective increases. While some work using a global perspective has begun to be undertaken, new analyses and approaches are needed to create a GIPE. The kernel of this GIPE is already in existence in the form of part of the large body of literature on gender and development. However, this literature now needs to expand its horizons. It should do more than just look at the Third World and cover the traditional ambit of 'development' and development studies. Despite criticism from some feminist international relations scholars who argue that the gender and development literature is too economistic and disempowering for Third World women, this article argues that it is more useful for the developing GIPE thanis the writing on IPE which comes from feminist international relations
