This panel will discuss Gender Challenges, a three-volume compendium by Professor Bina Agarwal, who is known for her path-breaking writings on agriculture, property rights, and the environment. The compendium brings together a selection of her essays, written over three decades, and is published by Oxford University Press, 2016. Combining diverse disciplines, methodologies, and cross-country comparisons, the essays challenge standard economic analysis and assumptions from a gender perspective. They provide original insights on a wide range of theoretical, empirical, and policy issues of continuing importance in contemporary debates.
