Book Launch: Manufacturing Urgency

event : Presentation & discussion


Manufacturing Urgency: the Development Industry and Violence against Women investigates anti-violence policies in international development, demonstrating that strategies intended to end violence against women are constructed to serve ends other than the needs of women.

Through careful consideration of anti-violence initiatives - including The Hillary Doctrine, the World Bank's The Cost of Violence, and the United Nation's UNiTE To End Violence Against Women campaigns - author Corinne Mason shows how these projects are technocratic, depoliticized, and executed in a manner that serves the interest of neoliberal economic growth and security concerns, at the expense of a more holistic, effective, and accountable approach.

Join us for an exciting conversation between author Corinne Mason and Rita Morbia, Executive Director of Inter Pares.

Details: Wednesday, September 20th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., 25OneCommunity, 251 Bank St., 2nd floor, Ottawa.
