Project Description

Drs. Deep Shikha and Sharon Doherty received a $20,000 Carol Easley Denny Award to examine the dynamics of the changing rural economy of India within the context of a self-governance model of economic development, which is rooted in community empowerment and participation. A conceptual framework will be developed that is based on economic, social and feminist theories of justice. Two competing economic development models (macro and micro) will be developed, and their impact on gender related issues will be analyzed.
