To Stand on Her Own Two Feet:: Women Empowerment at the Grassroots in Delhi
2016 (engelsk)Inngår i: Asia in Focus: A Nordic journal on Asia by early career researchers, ISSN 2446-0001, nr Special Issue, s. 32-42Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

The essay explores what the ubiquitous concept of (women) empowerment looks like in a state-civil society partnership development programme in Delhi at the grassroots level. The Mission Convergence Programme (MCP) was initiated in 2008, at a time when ambitions of transforming Delhi into a world-class city ran rampant through the governing bodies. Neoliberal ideals and targets have influenced urban governance in Delhi, and this essay sheds light on how this might affect social security projects aimed at the population of female urban poor. I achieve this by conceptualising the term empowerment, both on the global stage as well as in the Indian context, and then elucidate the Mission Convergence Programme and how it was received and used by the target group, namely urban poor women. Using data from of a qualitative study carried out in 2012, I find that the realities of daily life, gender roles and societal values affect the implementation of empowerment objectives in development programmes in Delhi.
