The Global Development Institute is hosting an “in conversation” event, marking the launch of Gender Challenges, a three volume compendium of Professor Bina Agarwal’s path-breaking selected papers.
Bina Agarwal, Professor of Development Economics and Environment at the GDI, is internationally acclaimed for her path-breaking writings on agriculture, property rights and the environment. Gender Challenges is a three-volume compendium of her selected essays written over the last three decades. Combining diverse disciplines, methodologies, and cross-country comparisons, the essays both challenge and illuminate standard economic assumptions from a gender perspective. They provide original insights on a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and policy issues of continuing importance in contemporary debates.
Bina Agarwal will be in conversation with Lucia Fry, Head of Policy, ActionAid UK, and Diane Elson, Emeritus Professor, University of Essex. The event will be chaired by Professor Fiona Devine, Head of Alliance Manchester Business School.
