Values Deliberation and Collective Action : Community Empowerment in Rural Senegal, Hardback Book

Values Deliberation and Collective Action : Community Empowerment in Rural Senegal Hardback


This book describes how a program of values deliberations--sustained group reflections on local values, aspirations, beliefs and experiences, blending with discussions of how to understand and to realize human rights--led to individual and collective empowerment in communities in rural Senegal.

The study explains what happens during the deliberations and shows how they bring about a larger process that results in improved capabilities in areas such as education, health, child protection, and gender equality.

It shows how participants, particularly women, enhance their agency, including their individual and collective capacities to play public roles and kindle community action.

It thus provides important insights on how values deliberations help to revise adverse gender norms.
