Feminist Critiques of the Sustainable Development Goals Analysis and Bibliography


This bibliography was created as part of the Consortium's Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and Planet (FRSPP) project. It starts with an analytical summary of the feminist literature assessing the transformative potential of the SDGs.

The bibliography itself is split into two sections. The first section provides a bibliography of the feminist academic literature on the SDGs; the second provides a bibliography of feminist analyses from NGOs and policy institutions. We have also included a few assessments that, although critical, lack a focus on gender issues. Insofar as possible, all entries include citations and abstracts or summaries.

This bibliography was created by the Consortium on Gender, Security and Human Rights, as part of the Feminist Roadmap for Sustainable Peace and Planet (FRSPP) project. The FRSPP starts with the perception that postwar transitions and the sustainability of peace itself are often undermined by transnational political economic actors and processes. Its goal is to provide: forward-looking expert knowledge of those processes; analyses of their impacts on gender relations and other structural inequalities underlying armed conflicts; and recommendations for how to engage and modify those processes to be more supportive of the societal transformations critical to building gender-equitable, sustainable peace. Topics addressed in the FRSPP include, inter alia: the economic recovery policy prescriptions of international financial institutions; extractives; land rights, large scale land acquisition and land grabbing; infrastructure reconstruction; and climate disruption.
