Andrea cornwall, elizabeth harrison and ann whitehead. This book explores the contested relationship between feminisms and development and the challenges for reasserting feminist engagement with development as a political project. Its starting point is pluralist – there are feminisms, not feminism, and ‘development’ covers a multitude of theoretical and political stances and a wide diversity of practices.

The political project of reasserting feminist engagement with development has proceeded uneasily in recent years. This book examines how the arguments of feminist researchers have often become depoliticised by development institutions and offers richly contextualised accounts of the pitfalls and compromises of the politics of engagement. Speaking from within academic institutions, social movements, development bureaucracies and national and international NGOs, the contributors highlight on-going battles for interpretation and the unequal power relations within which these battles take place. They engage with the challenges of achieving solidarity in the context of increasingly polarised geo-political relations, and advance a diversity of critiques of simplified ideas about gender, and how these ideas come to be interpreted in institutional policies and practices.
