Transforming masculine rule : agriculture and rural development in the European Union by Elisabeth Prügl( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a comparison of the EU's rural development program known as LEADER as it played out in the Altmark region in the German East and in the Danube/Bavarian Forest region in the West, the author describes how European agricultural policy has cemented long-standing gender-based inequalities and how feminists have used liberalization as an opportunity to challenge such inequalities
Gender politics in global governance( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De aanwezigheid van vrouwen in internationale organisaties neemt toe, maar hoe ziet die participatie eruit? De strategieën die gebruikt worden om toegang te krijgen tot die organisaties kunnen vanaf het ontstaan van de vrouwenbeweging (de eerste feministische golf) in twee soorten opgedeeld worden. Vanuit de instituties zelf verandering proberen doorvoeren wordt hier als een (vroege) vorm van mainstreaming beschouwd, terwijl het zich los van de bestaande instellingen organiseren en van buitenaf druk uitoefenen aangeduid wordt als 'disengaging strategies'. Binnen dat kader wordt de geschiedenis van de verwezenlijkingen in internationale instellingen bekeken. Ook de taal waarin over vrouwenbeleid gesproken wordt, evolueert. In de loop van deze eeuw verschoof het discours in de richting van gelijke kansen, in tegenstelling tot de nadruk op verschil tussen mannen en vrouwen. Tenslotte wordt er nog stilgestaan bij de globalisering van de markteconomie en de verschuivingen die daardoor gebeuren in de agenda's van internationale organisaties

Sexual violence against men in global politics by Maria Stern( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sexual violence against men is an under-theorized and under-noticed topic, though it is becoming increasingly apparent that this form of violence is widespread. Yet despite emerging evidence documenting its incidence, especially in conflict and post-conflict zones, efforts to understand its causes and develop strategies to reduce it are hampered by a dearth of theoretical engagement. One of the reasons that might explain its empirical invisibility and theoretical vacuity is its complicated relationship with sexual violence against women. The latter is evident empirically, theoretically and politically, but the relationship between these violences conjures a range of complex and controversial questions about the ways they might be different, and why and how these differences matter. It is the case that sexual violence (when noticed at all) has historically been understood to happen largely, if not only to women, allegedly because of their gender and their ensuing place in gender orders. This begs important questions regarding the impact of increasing knowledge about sexual violence against men, including the impact on resources, on understandings about, and experiences of masculinity, and whether the idea and practice of gender hierarchy is outdated. This book engages this diverse set of questions and offers fresh analysis on the incidences of sexual violence against men using both new and existing data. Additionally, the authors pay close attention to some of the controversial debates in the context of sexual violence against men, re-visiting and asking new questions about the vexed issue of masculinities and related theories of gender hierarchy. The book will be of great interest to students and scholars of sex, gender, masculinities, corporeality, violence and global politics, as well as to practitioners and activists."--Provided by publisher
Du grain à moudre : genre, développement rural et alimentation by Christophe Golay( )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage prolonge le colloque international Du grain à moudre. Genre, développement rural et alimentation qui s'est tenu en octobre 2010 à Genève. Les articles ici rassemblés contribuent à répondre aux questions suivantes: une analyse de genre des questions et changements agraires nous permet-elle de repenser l’organisation politique, économique et sociale du travail agricole et reproductif ? En quoi l’analyse des tensions dans l’articulation des divers rapports sociaux de production et de reproduction – au cœur du système de reproduction des inégalités sociales –, nous aide-t-elle à comprendre les crises des systèmes agraires et la crise de la reproduction sociale, dont la faim est la manifestation la plus criante ? Cet ouvrage montre non seulement combien le genre, en tant que catégorie d’analyse, est nécessaire pour comprendre les problèmes de société mais aussi que le champ de recherche genre et développement rural/agricole est maintenant bien défriché
Sous le développement, le genre by Agnès Adjamagbo( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ignorée, invisible, la question du genre reste cachée sous le développement. Et pourtant, comprendre le développement n'est pas possible sans une perspective de genre. Cet ouvrage, didactique, montre en quoi et comment le concept de genre permet de revisiter les études de développement. Le genre permet de comprendre la construction historique, sociale et culturelle des différences et des inégalités. Il offre des outils pour une analyse critique du système capitaliste globalisé. Le genre, inscrit dans le féminisme, permet aux catégories dominées et marginalisées, en particulier les femmes mais pas seulement, de faire entendre leurs voix. Dans le contexte actuel de crise globale et d'accroissement des inégalités, il propose des pistes pour renouveler la pensée sur le développement, mais aussi pour agir autrement. Combinant diverses disciplines et thématiques, cet ouvrage montre que la portée heuristique du genre ne se limite pas aux domaines habituellement considérés comme féminins (l'éducation, la famille, le social, la santé de la reproduction, etc.) mais s'étend à tous les domaines (le politique, le droit, la sécurité, la diplomatie, l'économie, etc.). Ce livre met aussi en évidence la diversité et l'enrichissement mutuel des diverses traditions de recherche entre le monde francophone, anglophone et hispanophone. Il s'adresse particulièrement aux étudiant-es, chercheur-es et enseignant-es, militant-es, chargé-es de programme dans des organisations de coopération et représentant-es des pouvoirs publics au Nord et au Sud
