About this product
- DescriptionUnravelling the complex relationship between gender inequality and trade, this is the first book to combine the tools of ecomic and gender analysis to examine the relationship between international trade and gender relations. It brings together fourteen contributions from a variety of ecomic perspectives, including structuralist, institutionalist, neoclassical and Post-Keynesian by a range of authors including Lourdes Beneria, William Darity, Marzia Fontana and Mariama Williams to demonstrate what feminist ecomics has contributed to the analysis of international trade, through theoretical modelling, ecometric analysis and policy-oriented contributions. It includes evidence from industrialized, semi-industrialized, and agrarian ecomies, using country case studies and cross-country analysis. Arguing that trade expansion and reduction of gender inequality can be combined, but only if an appropriate mix and sequence of trade and other ecomic policies is implemented, this book is key reading for all students of international ecomics, gender and cultural studies and politics and international relations, amongst other disciplines.
