Gender, trafficking, and slavery by Rachel Masika( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores areas of human experience that are highly complex, and which evoke powerful and contradictory feelings amongst those attempting to understand them. Although many view the institution of slavery as a purely historical phenomenon, slavery remains widespread today. It take many forms, often clandestine. One aspect of modern slavery that elicits particular revulsion is the trafficking of women and young girls and boys into the sex industry, and this is the focus of many of the authors in this book."--Jacket

The trade trap : poverty and the global commodity markets by Belinda Coote( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and German and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This best-selling book explains how countries that depend on the export of primary commodities, like coffee or cotton, are caught in a trap: the more they produce, the lower the price falls on the international market. If they try to add value to their commodities by processing them, they run into tariff barriers imposed by the rich industrialised nations. To make matters worse, they have to compete with subsidised exports dumped on the world market by rich surplus-producing countries." "This new edition contains an additional chapter which reports on the outcome of the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the creation of the new World Trade Organisation. It examines the impact of rapid economic liberalisation on the livelihoods and natural environments of poor communities, and recommends ways in which trade could be regulated to protect their rights."--BOOK JACKET

The Oxfam poverty report by Kevin Watkins( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and Vietnamese and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifty years ago, the United Nations Charter proclaimed universal rights to shared prosperity, peace, and security. How far has that vision of world citizenship been realised?"--BOOK JACKET. "Despite advances in human welfare and technology, there is today a growing polarisation between rich and poor. One in four of the world's people live in absolute poverty, unable to meet their basic needs; armed conflict is affecting millions of people; and the global environment is under threat. Yet there is a failure of political will to address the silent emergency of poverty."--BOOK JACKET. "The Oxfam Poverty Report draws on Oxfam's experience of working in over 70 countries, to examine the causes of poverty and conflict. It identifies the structural forces which deny people their basic rights, and gives a wide range of examples of the ways in which men and women are bringing about positive change at every level, from the household to the international arena."--BOOK JACKET. "Oxfam believes that it is time to renew the UN vision of universal basic rights. The Report concludes by proposing policy and institutional reforms which would transform international institutions and trading relations, and calls for a new commitment to work together to eradicate poverty and bring sustainable peace and security for all the world's people."--Jacket

Information management for development organisations by Mike Powell( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If information flows well between and within organisations, it empowers people by enabling them to make evidence-based choices; it promotes efficiency; and it enables creativity. Information does not flow well by chance: the process needs to be managed -- by everyone concerned. This book introduces tools to analyse the use of information in development and humanitarian agencies. It discusses both strategic and practical options for improvements, in the context of the broader information-related changes and debates taking place in the wider world." "This edition of Information Management for Development Organisations covers the major developments in these external debates since the first edition was published in 1998. The aim remains the same: to strengthen the effectiveness of development organisations and their interaction with the communities whom they exist to serve. Discussions of knowledge management, capacity building, institutional learning, evaluation and impact assessment, research, information products, and evidence-based work have been added to this edition, or considerably extended, together with a number of new case studies."--Back cover
Development methods and approaches critical reflections : selected essays from Development in practice by Deborah Eade( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many aid agencies adopt values-based approaches to development -- requiring, for instance, that they should be rights-based, participatory, gender-equitable, and sustainable -- but these approaches are often at odds with the methods that the agencies actually adopt. This selection of essays offers critical readings of fashionable tools such as Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and Logical Frameworks, in addition to presenting less familiar methods. Two central themes emerge: that a project-based approach tends to distort rather than illuminate the wider picture; and that whatever the ideology under-pinning a given method, its impact will depend on the skills and understanding of those applying it."--Back cover
Gender and migration by Caroline Sweetman( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The articles in this collection explore the vast array of different reasons for women and men moving within and outside their native countries, whether it be for employment, upon marriage, or in the midst of conflict." "The authors, who include Uma Kothari and Emma Crewe, Ben Rogaly and Alex Jones, stress the importance of seeing an individual migrant in her or his context as a member of a social network, spanning different locations. Understanding these links means that migration can be seen as part of a wider strategy for making a living."--Jacket
