Transforming Global Governance: Challenges and Opportunities

  • Georgina Waylen


The purpose of the last chapter of this book is twofold. It will not only assess the evidence and arguments presented in the rest of the book but in so doing it will reflect upon the opportunities for and limitations to the transformation of global governance for feminists. As we have seen from many of the contributions, there is ample evidence that governance regimes also reflect and construct gendered processes of power (Prügl 1999, 2004). Both understanding and transforming these regimes is therefore central to any feminist project of lessening gender inequality. But there are serious questions to be answered about the extent to which changing global rules and international bureaucracies can be a potential source of improving levels of women’s equality. And if these can be changed, what strategies should be used and what are the potential results of such a transformation?
