9780415662437: The Discursive Politics of Gender Equality: Stretching, Bending and Policy-Making (Routledge/Ecpr Studies in European Political Science)

This book explores the discursive constructions of gender equality and the implications of these understandings in a broad range of policy fields.

Using gender equality as a prime example, a number of internationally renowned scholars offer a new vocabulary to identify and study processes of the reduction, amplification, shifting or freezing of meaning. The main aim of the book is to understand the dynamics and to reflect on the consequences of such discursive politics in recent policy making on gender equality. It explores both the potential opportunities that are opened up for the promotion of equality through discursive politics, and the limitations they impose. Distinctive features of the volume include:

 

  • chapters covering a range of case studies in Europe, the USA, and the Asia region, tackling contemporary political debates on equality

  • new insights of relevance to public policy practices such as gender mainstreaming, with theorizing on intersecting inequalities

 

The Discursive Politics of Gender Equality will be of interest to students and scholars, of political science, public policy, comparative politics, gender and women studies.
