Their papers examine four inter-related themes: an explicit or implicit acknowledgment and critique of the European Enlightenment as a basis for the modern production of knowledge- the use and utility of gender as a concept- problems and solutions in feminist theories of development- and the place of feminism in the production of knowledge and on-the-ground change. Each paper reflects the authors experience as a researcher, theorist or change agent, as well as the discussion and dialogue of the five-day conference.
