Abstract

"Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence. Bringing together a range of experts across various sectors, this important volume explores some of the key issues that have arisen in the Global South with the COVID-19 pandemic. Situating the worldwide health crisis within broader processes of globalisation, the book investigates implications for development and gender, as well as the effects on migration, climate change and economic inequality. Contributors consider how widespread and long-lasting responses to the pandemic should be, while paying particular attention to the accentuated risks faced by vulnerable populations. Providing answers that will be essential to development practitioners and policy makers, the book offers vital insights into how the impact of COVID-19 can be mitigated in some of the most challenging socio-economic contexts worldwide.

Abstract

With an increasingly diverse ageing population, we need to understand how social divisions intersect to affect outcomes in later life. Gender and sexuality are recognised as key factors in determining a person’s experience of later life but little research has been done into how age, gender and sexualities work together and with other divisions, including ethnicity and class, to form a range of inequalities and opportunities for people as they age. The collection brings together an international group of researchers and writers from Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Israel, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Taiwan, the UK, and the USA, who argue for multiple, complex contextualised and spatialized approaches to understanding intersections of ageing, gender and sexualities and uneven outcomes in later life. The book highlights new ways of engaging with and thinking through questions related to ageing, gender and sexualities.

Abstract

"Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence. The Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda, associated with the United Nations Security Council resolutions of a similar name, is widely recognized as the most significant and wide- reaching global framework for advancing gender equality in military affairs, conflict resolution and security governance. The first of these resolutions, UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325, bound the international community to ensure, among other provisions, greater participation of women in decision making in national, regional and international institutions; their further involvement in peacekeeping, field operations, mission consultation and peace negotiations; increased funds and other support to the gender work of UN entities; enhanced state commitments to the human rights of women and girls and the protection of those rights under international law; the introduction of special measures against sexual violence in armed conflict; and due consideration to the experiences and needs of women and girls in humanitarian, refugee, disarmament and postconflict settings."

Abstract

The failure of a number of programmes and ongoing conflicts between neoliberal and post-neoliberal forces have resulted in growing social instability in Latin America. This book examines cultural responses to this instability. It looks at a wide range of cultural forms, such as literature, underground cinema, street fairs and self-help books to explore how Latin Americans construct subjectivities, build communities and make meaning in their everyday lives during a profound crisis of the social. In this context, the book emphasises the role which neoliberal and post-neoliberal narratives of self and social relationships may come to play in popular culture and everyday experience.

Abstract

Available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence. How to do more with less? This is, essentially, austerity’s onerous question. Its default answer, in turn, has been to defer, download and outsource the burden of being overtasked and cash strapped.
