Summary
"Obligations and Omissions: Canada's Ambiguous Actions on Gender Equality offers a critical analysis of Canada's commitments to gender equality programming. The chapters in this collection document Canada's equivocal approach, and overall diminished role, in the promotion of gender equality between 2006 and 2015. Drawing on rich theoretical analysis, empirical research and discourse analysis, the chapters reveal a complex picture of diverse practices in this time frame, underscoring the implications of these actions for communities in the Global South, for Canada's image in the international community and for future governments in the pursuit of a renewed gender equality strategy."--
