  • Promoting Gender Equity in Livelihoods Projects: Practitioners’
           Perspectives Through the Lens of a Socio-ecological Model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Renata Serra, Michelle Kendall, Alexandra Towns, James Hummer
      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      This article points to the untapped potential for meaningful and mutually beneficial exchange between development research and practice, by presenting an example of an iterative process of knowledge formation, whereby project staff’s collective experiential insights and inductive learning are used to obtain an enriched Socio-ecological Model (SEM), which is attuned to the lived experiences in the field and is reinforced by the available research evidence. Using Catholic Relief Services, one of the largest humanitarian and development organizations worldwide, as case study, interviews were conducted with project staff from nine livelihood and food security projects and gathered staff’s perceptions and experiences with promoting gender-equitable outcomes through improved intra-household gender dynamics and men’s involvement. The qualitative analysis of the interviews shows that, while projects tried to integrate activities across the four levels of the SEM (individual, family, community and societal), staff perceived that the stickiness of social norms, women’s time poverty and limited buy-in from local organizations affected progress and presented new challenges that required constant adaptation. Our proposed method shows how an SEM can be enriched by incorporating these additional elements and by using existing research to confirm the significance of the exercise. An enriched SEM, by explicitly pointing to cross-cutting challenges that emerge from the field, is better reflective of the realities in which the staff works than a simple SEM. A process of SEM’s validation through incorporating insights from field staff and collaboratively involving researchers has the potential to deepen how projects or organizations think about the way they can foster gender transformative change; as well as to lead to more informed research and enhance researchers’ appreciations of the practical nature of development project challenges.

  • Does Premature Deindustrialisation Stall Growth' Evidence from
           Sub-Saharan Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Rekha R., Suresh Babu Manalaya
      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Structural transformation (ST) accelerates growth when labour transition occurs from low-productivity to high-productivity sectors. However, evidence from Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) indicates that the manufacturing sector is not generating enough employment opportunities and that labour absorption is primarily occurring in low-productivity service activities—a process known as premature deindustrialisation that hinders the growth-enhancing effect of ST. This article contributes by quantifying the effect of labour movement across sectors and estimating its impact on growth in the region. We apply the Shapley decomposition technique to extract the effect of ST on change in labour productivity. Next, by using a panel ARDL framework, we analyse the impact of ST on long-run economic growth for 12 middle-income economies from SSA for the period 1992–2017. Our findings suggest that in the long-run, ST towards low productivity service activities is having a growth-depressing effect on these economies. Although middle-income African economies have adopted several policy initiatives to reverse the deindustrialisation trend, our findings show that these have not (so far) generated economic growth. Further efforts are needed in these countries to foster the investment climate, infrastructure, financial sector, skills and regional integration needed for labour transition towards high productivity sectors.

  • Mainstreaming Climate Change into Emerging Donor’s Official Development
           Assistance: The Case of South Korea

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Kisang Kim, Esther S. Choi, Suh-Yong Chung
      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      This article assesses how South Korea, an emerging donor, is mainstreaming climate change considerations into its official development assistance (ODA) activities. We find that Korea’s climate mainstreaming remains in the incipient stage, with a lack of consistent political commitment at the macro level, misalignment with the recipient’s development plans at the meso level and insufficient institutional capacity at the micro level. In addition to the governance systems that fall short of incentivizing the mainstreaming of climate change, this research identifies a number of characteristics accounting for Korea’s progress with climate mainstreaming that may be unique to emerging donors, like under-reporting of climate ODA and the absence of mainstreaming fatigue.

  • Using Economic Diaries in an Ethnographic Study: What They Can Tell About
           the Financial and Daily Lives of Male and Female Sex Workers in Mombasa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Emmy Kageha Igonya, Lorraine Nencel, Ida Sabelis, Grace Kimemia
      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      This article has two objectives: first, to contribute to the academic understanding of the relationship of money with sex work by going beyond purely instrumentalist conceptualizations; and second, to inform interventions aiming to empower sex workers’ economically. Qualitative research was conducted to better understand the financial lives of sex workers in Mombasa, Kenya. The article draws largely on a participatory method using 12 economic diaries accompanied by 30 informal discussions. We complement the economic diaries with 24 in-depth interviews, key informant interviews and participant observations conducted between 2014 and 2017. We found that sex workers’ savings, spending, and earning practices were highly influenced by stigma, mobility and economic insecurity. We also found that sex workers gave substantial meaning to the idea of ‘quick money’, which reflected their daily financial strategies. The likelihood for development interventions to succeed will increase when sex workers are directly involved and not just recipients in programmes; furthermore, that programmes adequately recognize and address the needs and desires of sex workers and understand the socio-economic dynamics shaping sex work. In this article, these socio-economic factors revealed through the process and method of participants’ writing economic diaries.

  • Beyond Consumption Expenditure: Income Inequality and Its Sources in India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Tushar Agrawal, Ankush Agrawal
      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      A considerable body of research on inequality in India has focused on consumption inequality. This article compares inequality in consumption expenditure and income, using two waves of the India Human Development Survey. We find that while income inequality increased marginally, expenditure inequality remained stable. The article also undertakes the decomposition of income inequality by sources and finds that wage and agricultural incomes contribute most to inequality in rural areas whereas wage and business incomes are the major contributors in urban areas. Wages and government transfers arse found to be inequality-decreasing sources of income, and agricultural income is found to be inequality-increasing. While government transfers benefit low-income households, there is potential for increasing their efficacy and for attaining a more egalitarian distribution of income by better targeting. Further, we examine how expenditure and income are associated with the ownership of household assets. Our findings suggest that low consumption is a better indicator of material well-being than low income.

      Drawing on qualitative research from rural and urban areas, this article contributes to evolving social research in Ghana on possible changes in the gendered distribution of domestic labour. Formulated within debates on ‘doing gender’ and ‘undoing gender’, this study examines the extent to which acts of gender transgression may potentially occur during peak reproductive periods in the lives of Ghanaian couples. The findings of the study indicate that the participants reiterated normative gendered definitions of men as primary providers and women as primary domestic caretakers. Nonetheless, it was noted that during their partner’s pregnancy, men in both urban and rural areas were willing to modify their daily schedule to incorporate more housework. Simultaneously, men’s involvement in all or most of the household chores was perceived as potentially dangerous to the gendered balance of labour in the family and could, according to the participants, stimulate laziness among female partners. Despite the apparent resistance to male performance of domestic chores, the article argues that men’s willingness to do housework during their partner’s pregnancy may be an early indicator of slow but steady transformations in gender relations in Ghana.

  • Space, Time and Structure: Unpacking Relationships in International
           Development Volunteering

      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      Relationships and relational outcomes are key in international development volunteering (IDV) research, but little attention has been paid to the spaces of relationship formation. This article contributes to the literature by unpacking volunteer–local relationships using a spatial lens. It uses a case study of Singapore–Cambodia IDV projects spanning the short and long-term temporal continuum to unpack how space, time and structure influence volunteer–local relationships. It presents three distinct development spaces—structured, social and transition spaces—that shape hierarchical, reciprocal or convivial relationships. These findings highlight the role organizations play in volunteer–local relationships, and the importance of making space and time for more equitable relationships.

  • Datafication, Power and Control in Development: A Historical Perspective
           on the Perils and Longevity of Data

      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      The collection, processing, storage and circulation of data are fundamental element of contemporary societies. While the positivistic literature on ‘data revolution’ finds it essential for improving development delivery, critical data studies stress the threats of datafication. In this article, we demonstrate that datafication has been happening continuously through history, driven by political and economic pressures. We use historical examples to show how resource and personal data were extracted, accumulated and commodified by colonial empires, national governments and trade organizations, and argue that similar extractive processes are a present-day threat in the Global South. We argue that the decoupling of earlier and current datafication processes obscures the underlying, complex power dynamics of datafication. Our historical perspective shows how, once aggregated, data may become imperishable and can be appropriated for problematic purposes in the long run by both public and private entities. Using historical case studies, we challenge the current regulatory approaches that view data as a commodity and frame it instead as a mobile, non-perishable, yet ideally inalienable right of people.

  • Is India’s Right to Education Act a Rightful Share' Distributive
           Politics, Education and the Media

      Abstract: Progress in Development Studies, Ahead of Print.
      India’s Right to Education Act contains a provision requiring private schools to educate underprivileged children without charging fees, hinting at a new politics of distribution akin to James Ferguson’s notion of the ‘rightful share’. Through analysis of coverage of this provision in English language newspapers, we argue that the role of the media in building legitimacy for a ‘rightful share’ is undermined: by critics’ representations of a market-based distribution of education as more just; by supporters’ use of traditional welfare language of compassion for the meritorious poor; and, by reports of implementation failures that undermine the value of social assistance. This points to the significance of universality, unconditionality and clear distributive logics to the concept of the ‘rightful share’.
