Gender and Global Development: Theory and Practice
This course provides you with advanced knowledge of gender issues in the context of globalisation, development and ‘global’ social transformation.
The course is divided into two interrelated sections. The first section explores gender from different theoretical perspectives. The aim is to read, discuss and analyse work from a range of current feminist researchers (both from the North and South) within the field. Hereby you will develop your ability to use theory to understand gender in relation to development, globalisation, and social transformation. The second part will provide you with the knowledge to critically engage in the practical aspects of ‘doing development’. It will examine a range of gender issues in development planning. The course will provide the skills needed to work in practical development activities and provide for a gender perspective within organisations, policy-making and NGOs.
