This book analyses a number of theoretical debates with regard to rights, justice and gender, and the light they throw on the global movement for gender equality in education, with a particular focus on the Education for All declaration and the Millennium Development Goals. The author concentrates the discussion on the significance of the theoretical insights for policy and practice.
The book is divided into three parts. The first part outlines a number of key theoretical issues concerning rights, conceptualizations of gender, and global social justice. The second part of the book considers how the debates concerning global justice, the definition of gender and forms of democratization are negotiated within particular settings. The concluding section of the book highlights the significance of the theoretical debates and the different forms of practice for each other.
