Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course Description:
The course seeks to critically examine how development processes affect women and men and gender relations. Most development projects and policies actually impact men and women’s lives differently. The course has two sections: the first provides a theoretical and conceptual grounding by reviewing debates around women/gender and development, while the second part explores the gendered impact of development policies and processes by examining substantive issues such as, globalization, HIV/AIDS, and financial inclusion gender gap. Case studies are utilized from different regional and cultural contexts. The course also explores the diversity of women’s resistance, struggles and activism at the local, national and transnational levels.

Student Learning Outcomes:
After completing the course the students should understand the main perspective and debates in gender and development and be able to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses; have a sense of how competing perspectives on women and development are connected to particular interests and concerns, and be able to develop a critical awareness of issues facing women of the South.
