Handbook of Feminist Governance

About the eBook

Compiling state-of-the-art research from 58 leading international scholars, this dynamic Handbook explores the evolution of feminist analytical and organising principles and their introduction into governance institutions in national, regional and global settings.



Beginning with an introduction to key theoretical concepts and an international timeline of feminist governance, the Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of feminist organisational principles and practice. Chapters cover a variety of timely issues, from quotas, gender budgeting and gender mainstreaming to institutional design, international norm transmission and the emergence of feminist foreign policy. Regional innovations in feminist governance across the EU, Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific are further examined. The Handbook ultimately reflects and builds upon the body of feminist scholarship that has long been part of the development of feminist governance, as well as highlighting potential avenues for future research.



This wide-ranging Handbook will be an essential reference text for students and scholars of gender studies, politics and international relations. Its analysis of what has been achieved by feminist governance across diverse institutional contexts will also assist the work of feminist activists and gender equality practitioners both inside and outside government.
