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
