International Research Collaboratives
Chantal Thomas, Nkatha Kabira
The International Research Collaborative on Gender and Political Economy will research the premise that conceptions of gender, sex, sexuality and the family are constitutive of, not peripheral to, global legal orders in their socioeconomic dimensions. The goal of this international research collaborative will be to bring together comparative perspectives on the relationship between gender roles and the legal, social and cultural norms and institutions that shape markets and economies. The objective is to contribute to a framework for a comprehensive distributional analysis of gender in the law, and to do so in a way that attends to both the role of theory in action and the role of action in theory.
