Handbook on the International Political Economy of Gender

Edited by Juanita Elias and Adrienne Roberts

This Handbook brings together leading interdisciplinary scholarship on the gendered nature of the international political economy. Spanning a wide range of theoretical traditions and empirical foci, it explores the multifaceted ways in which gender relations constitute and are shaped by global politico-economic processes. It further interrogates the gendered ideologies and discourses that underpin everyday practices from the local to the global. The chapters in this collection identify, analyse, critique and challenge gender-based inequalities, whilst also highlighting the intersectional nature of gendered oppressions in the contemporary world order.

Chapter 12: Multiple dimensions of gender inequality: engaging ‘the state’ in IPE

Stefanie Wöhl


Debates on the gendered nation state have highlighted the ambivalent outcomes of policy implementation concerning gender issues in the global political economy. National state institutions still play a major role in negotiating women’s rights, fostering their advocacy and implementing gender equality measures such as gender mainstreaming and gender budgeting on the national and local level. At the same time, through processes of global governance, state institutions are in transition and often lose ground to corporate interests in the global political economy. This chapter addresses these issues and retraces the feminist state debate in the gendered International Political Economy. It illustrates key theoretical debates on gender and the state and focuses on examples from the Global North and South to show how neoliberal market transformation has shaped these debates.
