Abstract

This book is concerned with understanding the complex ways in which gender violence and poverty impact on young people?s lives, and with the potential for education to challenge violence. Although there is a growing literature looking at the links between violence, gender or poverty and education in developing countries, few studies look at the interconnections between all these themes. A key premise of this book is that in order to understand the many dimensions of violence in young people?s lives, these interconnections need to be examined. This book is the first major attempt to define the field of gender violence studies in education in poverty contexts. We do this by setting out relevant theoretical perspectives, empirical methodologies and case studies of the impact of gender violence on young people?s lives in families, schools and communities. There are three interrelated aims: 1. To build theoretical and methodological framings for understanding the relationship between gender, violence, poverty and education 2. To explore how young people living in varying contexts of poverty in the Global South learn about, engage in, respond to and resist gender violence 3. To investigate how institutions, including schools, families, communities, governments, international and non-governmental organisations and the media constrain or expand possibilities to challenge gender violence in the Global South The book, edited by Jenny Parkes, combines chapters by well-known and emerging scholars undertaking research on violence.
