Gender, Development and Globalization: Economics as if All People Mattered (Paperback)

£41.99

Synopsis

Gender, Development, and Globalization is the leading primer on global feminist economics and development. Lourdes Beneria, a pioneer in the field of feminist economics, is joined in this second edition by Gunseli Berik and Maria Floro to update the text to reflect the major theoretical, empirical, and methodological contributions and global developments in the last decade. Its interdisciplinary investigation remains accessible to a broad audience interested in an analytical treatment of the impact of globalization processes on development and wellbeing in general and on social and gender equality in particular.





The revision will continue to provide a wide-ranging discussion of the strategies and policies that hold the most promise in promoting equitable and sustainable development. The authors make the case for feminist economics as a useful framework to address major contemporary global challenges, such as inequalities between the global South and North as well as within single countries; persistent poverty; and increasing vulnerability to financial crises, food crises, and climate change. The authors' approach is grounded in the intellectual current of feminism and human development, drawing on Amartya Sen's capability approach and focused on the importance of the care economy, increasing pressures faced by women, and the failures of neoliberal reforms to bring about sustainable development, reduction in poverty, inequality, and vulnerability to economic crisis.

Lourdes Beneria is Professor of City and Regional Planning and former director of the Gender and Global Change Program and of the Latin American Studies Program at Cornell University. Her work has focused on gender and development, paid/unpaid work, globalization, labor markets and structural adjustment policies, particularly in Latin America. Gunseli Berik is Professor of Economics at the University of Utah, USA. Her research and teaching is in the fields of development economics, gender and development, feminist economics, and political economy of ethnicity, gender, and class. Berik is co-editor of the journal Feminist Economics. Maria S. Floro is Professor of Economics and co-director of the Program on Gender Analysis in Economics at American University. Her publications include Credit Markets and the New Institutional Economics, Women's Work in the World Economy, and articles on time allocation, unpaid work, finance, informal employment, vulnerability and poverty.
