GPRG Members Fiona Mackay and Meryl Kenny have contributed to an agenda setting collection of essays entitled Critical Perspectives on Feminist Institutionalism, published in 2009 in the APSA journal Politics & Gender.
The collection explores the limits and possibilities of the dominant institutionalist approaches. Each of the first four pieces outlines the potential contribution of their preferred type - rational choice, historical, sociological, and discursive institutionalism - to a feminist institutionalism. The final contribution stands back and taking a more critical stance, considers what gendered and institutionally-focussed feminist work could contribute to mainstream institutionalist understandings of structure and agency in political life.
