Overview

How are global institutions gendered? Do they play a role in continuing global inequality? Can anything be done to change them? In the first comprehensive study of global governance from a feminist perspective, this collection gathers together an exemplary line-up of internationally-renowned scholars to provide a theoretically-informed and empirically-based analysis of both the institutions of global governance and the attempts to transform them.

Bringing together interdisciplinary and multi-level analyses of global governance within a coherent theoretical framework, this volume demonstrates the diversity and breadth within feminist approaches, including case studies from institutions such as the International Criminal Court and the World Bank, as well as regional organisations, such as the EU, and covering an array of policy areas including security, trade, agriculture and macroeconomics. This book provides an invaluable addition to the literature on global governance and will be essential reading for all those who study it.
