Feminists in Development Organizations. Change from the Margins

Feminist bureaucrats: contradiction, feminists in development organizationsco-optation or political strategy?

Published in late 2013, this bookco-edited with Laura Turquet arises from a collaborative project, one of many, in the international research consortium, Pathways of Women’s Empowerment. Between 2007 and 2012  feminists working inside the head offices of multilateral organisations, government aid agencies and international non-governmental organisations came together to critically reflect on their work.It shows how feminists can build effective strategies to influence development organizations to foster greater understanding and forge more effective alliances for social change.

The book is for staff of development organisations  and who want their organisations to become instrumental in helping transform the live of women,  for feminist activists trying to change these organisations from the outside, and for scholars and students concerned with the politics if gender mainstreaming
