This course is designed to survey a range of gender and development issues globally ranging from: the political economy of underdevelopment, feminist analysis of development issues, the sexual division of labour, women’s survival strategies, population issues, and women’s relationship with the environment. Of course, in the current context of rapid social, economic, technological and environmental changes in the world, it is imperative to understand the effects of change on various sub-groups: women, men, indigenous peoples, different classes, and other social groups. Gender and Development Studies (GDS) highlights both the need for specialized focus in gender and development, and the integration of gender analysis and gender relation perspectives.
