Encountering Marginalisation and Exclusion in Globalising Nations – Gender Issues and Concerns

Tuesday, 12 July 2016: 16:00-17:30
Location: Marietta Blau Saal (Main Building)
WG05 Famine and Society (host committee)

Language: English

Often discoursed among academics is the current face of globalisation reshaping the notion of development. It is a mere reiteration of the fact that globalisation brings about massive economic changes in nations at the cost of intra-organic solidarity. 
In the context of gender equality and equity in administration and policy matters, globalisation creates cultural tension and dismantles the structural units of the society. The session will focus on women’s issues and wellbeing in a globalised society keeping in view the needs of social justice, social security and democratisation. It calls upon papers on themes like:

  • Revisiting feminist theories and approaches on womens’ exclusion. 
  • Women’s marginalisation in labour market. 
  • Poverty and social exclusion of women. 
  • Gender violence in urban space. 
  • Social security of single women.
  • Provision of human rights in gender account. 
  • Women in rural áreas: sustenance and vulnerabilities. 
  • Women in competitiveness in the new urban fabric for growth and survival.

However papers are welcome addressing issues not limited to the above ones but allied with the theme of the session.
