Asia in Focus : Special Issue on Gender and Family in a Globalising India
November 4, 2016
We are pleased to announce the release of the first Special Issue of Asia in Focus, Gender and Family in a Globalising India. The Special Issue is based on a seminar on the same topic held in Oslo in early 2016 at the initiative of the Norwegian Network for Asian Studies. As per the introduction written by the editorial team, Kenneth Bo Nielsen, Karina Standal, Anne Waldrop and Harold Wilhite:
“Rich in context and representing the great variety that makes up India, the articles of this special issue reveal that the effect of globalization on gender empowerment, equality, and family organisation varies considerably geographically, and across the urban/rural divide”
