The Ethics of Care: A Feminist Approach to Human Security

2011 | 200 Pages | ISBN: 1439900655 | PDF | 1 MB

In The Ethics of Care, Fiona Robinson demonstrates how the responsibilities of sustaining life are central to the struggle for basic human security. She takes a unique approach, using a feminist lens to challenge gender biases in rights-based, individualist approaches. Robinson's thorough and impassioned consideration of care in both ethical and practical terms provides a starting point for understanding and addressing the material, emotional, and psychological conditions that create insecurity for people. The Ethics of Care examines "care ethics" and "security" at the theoretical level and explores the practical implications of care relations for security in a variety of contexts: women's labour in the global economy, humanitarian intervention and peace building, healthcare, and childcare. Theoretically innovative and policy relevant, this critical analysis demonstrates the need to understand the obstacles and inequalities that obstruct the equitable and adequate delivery of care around the world.
