Gender, Law and Justice in a Global Market

Professor Anne Stewart (Associate Professor and Reader in Law, University of Warwick)

ISSP Seminar Room, Cairnes Building, NUI Galway 13:00 :: 6th February 2013

Theories of gender justice in the twenty-first century must engage with global economic and social processes. Using concepts from economic analysis associated with global commodity chains and feminist ethics of care, Ann Stewart considers the way in which 'gender contracts' relating to work and care contribute to gender inequalities worldwide. She explores how economies in the global north stimulate desires and create deficits in care and belonging which are met through transnational movements and traces the way in which transnational economic processes, discourses of rights and care create relationships between global south and north.

This seminar is part of the 2013 Whitaker Institute Seminar Series.
