Gender and Women's Issues across North-South Divides

Sara de Jong

Oxford Studies in Gender and International Relations

  • Draws from a unique sample of interviews with women in the global North who intervene in the global South, and those who work in the global North with female migrants from the global South
  • Sketches a multi-faceted picture of NGO workers that transcends a good versus bad binary
  • Demonstrates tension between theory (from postcolonial and black feminism, critical development literature, and global citizenship theory) and practice in daily work
