Item description for Arab Women and Economic Development by Heba Handoussa...

The subject of women s participation in economic activity in the MENA region has acquired particular importance in view of the pressures of globalization, trade liberalization, the need for more women entrepreneurs, and a stronger presence in regional non-government organizations, as well as labor market and fiscal hurdles as they affect women. This volume highlights the frequent and visible discrimination against women as essential actors in the development process, and discusses means by which traditional and conservative constraints to their increased participation in social, political, and productive life can be overcome. The six studies in this volume reflect the views of diverse regional experts and several international organizations, brought together at a seminar held in Kuwait under the auspices of the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development and the Arab Monetary Fund. They cover key aspects of the problematic and are presented together with a review of comments by specialists and discussants. In addition, an overview of the key issues is given, as well as a narrative of seminar proceedings. Contributors: Abdelatif Al-Hamad, Jassim Al-Mannai, Ahmed Benbitour, Heba Handoussa, Nicole Laframboise, Tea Trumbic, Nadereh Chamlou, Reem Kattaneh Yared, Farida Aboul- Kasem Al-Allaghi, Faiza Benhadid, Maisa Sabh, and Mervat Badawi.
