In recent decades the presence of women in public life has grown in politics, the workforce, and in the migrant streams that cross international borders. However, gender inequalities continue to be a persistent and integral feature of the modern world and its institutions: markets and macroeconomic flows, states, political parties and social movements, and the intimate sphere of family, household and community.
This new Routledge/UNRISD series engages with a wide range of contested issues—politics and governance, identity and conflict, welfare state and social policy reform, markets and macroeconomics, the care economy, migration and social rights—through a gender lens and with insights gained from feminist theory. The series is intended for scholars and students of gender studies, development studies, comparative politics and related disciplines.
The following titles are forthcoming in the series:
