Feminism Triumphant and Tamed: The Politics of Knowledge in Gender and Development with Elisabeth M. Prügl

October 31, 2014

How can we foster and integrate feminist ideas into development conversations that take place in large international organizations? WAPPP fellow Elisabeth Prügl finds that feminist ideas have triumphed and been tamed at the same time within the World Bank. Prügl analyzes a variety of documents and interviews with gender experts to identify how these contradictory effects have taken place. Speaker: Elisabeth M Prügl, WAPPP Fellow, 2014-2015; Professor of International Relations; Director, Program for Gender and Global Change, Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva
