Gender and Politics in Practice
How can a gendered understanding of power and politics make development work more effective? Many development programs tend to look at gender issues and politics separately. Through a series of case studies, this research asks what we can learn from more integrated approaches.
A briefing note highlights five key lessons that emerge from the research. The GAPP publications series also includes:
- a literature review
a context paper, and three in-depth studies that examine how gender and politics came together in social change processes:
- women political leaders in the Pacific
- labour reform in Vietnam’s clothing industry
- transgender empowerment and social inclusion in Indonesia
- 14 short case studies of development programs that aim to be both politically informed and gender aware, and a synthesis of their key insights
