To provide students with knowledge about and insight into gender theories and how these can be used in analyses of inequalities within the field of development policy and international and transnational relations.
The module will give an introduction to the area of ‘gender and globalisation’, in particular in the context of development and international relations, and will include discussions of specific cases and case studies in which gender and equality can be understood from local, regional and global perspectives (including the EU as a regional institution). Specific emphasis will be placed on the history of gender and equality policy within the field of development and international relations, on possibilities and limitations of international law and human rights, and on analyses of gender and equality policies in various contexts and parts of the world, which are relevant areas of research within development and international relations. The module will form the basis of further theoretical and practical work within the field in the project module of the semester.
The module consists of lectures and seminars, and whenever considered appropriate also exercises and student contributions.
