Chapter 18: Environment, foreign investment and gender
The ways in which women and girls are affected by, and influence, foreign investment and the environment are underexamined in international law research. In addition, the lack of genderspecific legal or policy analyses and research on gender-disaggregated data results in underdocumented harms and lost potential benefits. This chapter sets out a roadmap for researching the intersection of gender, environment and foreign investment. It discusses the role of gender in the nexus of foreign investment and the environment as well as the role of gender blindness and gender mainstreaming in research, law and policy on these issues. This includes delineating key legal issues set into relief by focusing on the interaction between gender, the environment, and foreign investment. It also provides a tentative framework for developing a robust qualitative body of research on the nexus of gender, the environment and foreign investment and identifies potential issues and directions for future research.
