Abstract:This collective volume contains revised papers of a workshop (Johannesburg, South Africa, April 2001) on gender and urban housing, with emphasis on qualitative methodology. It illustrates an important perspective of gender and gender relations in the various facets of housing provision/acquisition approaches, including homeownership, low-income and self-help schemes; tenancy; sanitation technology; housing construction and privatization. Several major issues emerging from these are classified under the following themes: gender neutrality; gender exclusion; property rights; family, home and inheritance; and gendered work. The authors present case studies from the following countries: Botswana (Faustin Kalabamu); Lesotho (Victor Ngonidzashe Muzvidziwa); Malawi (Emma C. Kishindo); South Africa (Nonhlanhla Mjoli-Mncube; Mabel Radebe); Swaziland (Miranda Mafafo); Zambia (Ann Schlyter); and Zimbabwe (Thando Gwebu). [ASC Leiden abstract]
