Abstract:

Based on a survey of different forms of inequalities in South East Asia, Josefa S. Francisco looks at how gender inequality not only erodes human security, but also deepens festering structural conflicts, vulnerabilities, and exclusions in society. She argues that there are systemic barriers to a more equitable distribution of opportunities in education, income, health, and wider life chances in society, which are reinforced by stark inequalities in access to and benefits from resources, capacities, and potentials.Development (2007) 50, 103–114. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1100363
