Handbook on Gender  Diversity and Federalism

This insightful Handbook offers a comprehensive exploration of the third generation of gender and federalism studies. Contributors explore the intersection of federalism and decolonization in Global South countries, dissecting transitions between authoritarian regimes and democratic governance and mapping new issues in Western federations, such as LGBTQ rights and separatism.Key chapters examine critical policy issues in federations, drawing on a range of disciplines to offer fresh insights into how federal practices, institutions and discourses interact with gender and other diversities including 'race', religion and sexual minorities. In this timely and authoritative examination, feminist scholars in both the West and the Global South debate the impact of state architectures on women's movements, partisan organizations and policy advocacy using innovative discursive, institutional, quantitative and intersectional approaches.This Handbook will be of interest to researchers and students of gender and federalism studies; feminist political scientists; traditional federalism scholars; feminist researchers in gender-focused social science fields; mainstream and feminist policy analysts and practitioners; and comparative politics scholars.
