PANEL 5.07

Movements in gender / gendered movements

Coordination:
Emezat Hailu, Institute of Gender Studies, Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia;
Thera Mjaaland, University of Bergen, Norway;
Anne Britt Flemmen , University of Tromso, Norway.

Gender equality and women’s rights have become key issues in national and international development policies, and a main concern in the ‘Millennium effort’ to eradicate poverty. We want to explore development policy and practice, and to scrutinize encounters between national/international and local understandings of gender, gender equality and women's rights in the Ethiopian context where gender sensitive laws have been implemented, and institutional bodies on gender are incorporated on all levels of governmental structure. Questions to be asked are therefore how the legal and juridical provisions, and the mainstreaming of gender, have enabled movements in gender relations, and how divergent frames of reference (e.g. government policies versus more normative understandings of gender) are mediated, negotiated, contested across economic, socio-cultural, familial/interpersonal, legal, political, psychological and spiritual/religious domains.
We invite contributions that explore the underlying assumptions on gender in Ethiopia in relation to national and international development policy and practice, and those that explore gendered movements and processes of change in gender relations, from a wide range of empirical studies within Ethiopia. Attentive to the fact that gender often continues to mean ‘women’, we also encourage contributions that incorporate ‘men’ and their involvement in gendered movements and changes in gender relations.
